Comment from Jim

I just finished “Pride Runs Deep” and I really enjoyed it. As you well know the SS244 is actually the Cavalla which did sink a Japanese carrier involved in the Dec 7, 1941 attack. I am a member of the Cavalla Base of the USSVI and make pens from the decking. I would be proud to send a cigar pen to you as a reminder of the 52 lost boats. No charge of course. Please advise.

Jim. A fine ship with a proud history. What a great idea and a nice tribute to our fallen sailors. Thank you for the kind offer. I’m so glad you enjoyed Pride. Thanks for your continued service to our country and to our service men and women! With much respect – RCC
