AIMM Mission

To commemorate America's rich naval and maritime heritage through the preservation and
exhibition of historic naval vessels with an emphasis on the era of World War II through the present.

The American Submariner

AIMM has been working with the U.S. Submarine Veteran's, Inc. (USSVI) to create electronic versions of all available back issues of their publication, The American Submariner.

Originally titled The Submarine National Review, USSVI has published this magazine since the mid-1960s, usually on a quarterly basis.

Each issue contains information about the organization's day-to-day operations, but they also contain a treasure trove of information about submarine history, including many personal stories not published elsewhere.

At the present time, 112 issues, from 1966 to 2000 have been scanned. (It takes approximately 1 hour to scan each issue.)

Issues from 1966 to 1985 (54 issues) have been indexed to show the submarines mentioned in each issue, as well as titles and subjects of articles and names of individuals featured. (It takes approximately an hour to index each issue, especially the larger ones.)

The electronic copies of each issue have been provided to USSVI and will be hosted on their website. Copies are also available, upon request, to museum patrons, or via e-mail request to the .

Corrections or general questions should be sent to the .

AIMM would like to thank John Barr, Katelyn Abel, Andy Zonner and the other volunteers who have put so many hours into this project.
