55th Annual USS Thresher Memorial Service
The members of United States Submarine Veterans Thresher Base extend their gratitude USS Thresher Family members Carol & John Norton, and Jim & Clairette Abrams for their generous donation of $1000 to the USS Thresher Memorial Fund. Carol & Jim are the children of Fred Philip Abrams, Civilian Inspector, Portsmouth Naval Shipyard.
Thresher Base relies solely on donations to fund the annual memorial services. All of the labor for the planning, communication, and execution of the annual USS Thresher memorial services is conducted by Thresher Base SubVets volunteering their time. Our recurring costs include the invitation printing & mailing, program printing, roses, facility rental, custodial staff, bag-piper and the live Internet broadcast crew & associated audio/video equipment rental. On the 5 year increment memorial services, we add a post service reception.
If you are interested in making a supportive donation, please make a check out to USSVI Thresher Base, annotating the check in the lower left with "Thresher Memorial Fund".
Another option to consider was started in 2016 by the family of the late Barbara F. Currier, wife of Paul Chevalier Currier, Ship Progressman Machinist, Portsmouth Naval Shipyard. In Barbara's obituary, the family asked that in lieu of flowers, donations in Barbara's honor be used for the funding of the Annual USS Thresher Memorial Services.
