Description 

A BALAO class submarine, she was one of 132 fleet submarines built during WORLD WAR II for the U.S. Navy as part of the major submarine construction program that followed the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. The submarine warfare pursued by the U.S. and supported by this construction program was instrumental in securing an American victory in the Pacific. One of nine submarines converted to a GUPPY III in 1947, CLAMAGORE is now the only surviving GUPPY Type III in the U.S. -- National Historic Landmark statement of significance, June 29, 1989
