By Mary Nida Smith

USSVI Submarine Veterans Base of Mountain Home, founded by Robert Buschbacker, provides histories and pictures, plus many others across America share war and peace time stories, of how it was, and is, to live below the sea, encountering the unknown. Few people know what a huge part the USS Submarine Service plays in protecting us and our freedom.

Smith’s husband CPO Melvin Smith, served sixteen years in submarines and five years in anti-submarine helicopters. He served, starting at seventeen, in WWII, Korea and Viet Nam.
