The USS DRUM’s story is a tribute to the brave men who served…27 kills…13 war patrols…12 battle stars…and over 80,000 tons of steel on the ocean floor.
Step inside the USS DRUM 228 and meet the men who served during 13 WWII combat missions. Relive history as it unfolded aboard the world’s oldest Gato Class diesel submarine. The USS DRUM and her crew survived Pearl Harbor and later, a depth charge attack that cracked the hull. This 70-minute documentary features never before seen interviews with the crew who stared death in the face and lived to tell about it.
