A visitor this memorial left the following information:

Stationed aboard the submarine tender USS Canopus (AS-9), it received severe damage when hit by heavy bombers on December 29, 1941. She was later scuttled off Manila Bay rather than face capture by the enemy. Her crew was used in the defense of Bataan and Corregidor. A large number of her crew died in the Philippine Islands, during transport to POW camps in Japan, or in the camps themselves. PH2 Ambro died when the ship Arisan Maru, transporting Allied Prisoners of War from the Philippines to Japan, was sunk by USS Shark (SS-314).
