On 19 June, the USS O-9 submarine departed New London with other O-boats, for tests off the Isle of Shoals. After the other 2 subs had successfully completed their tests 20 June, O-9 submerged at 0738 to conduct deep submergence tests; the sub did not surface but foundered and was crushed by the pressure of the water 402 feet deep. The USS O-9 took her entire crew of 34 brave souls to Eternal Patrol.
