"One of the most beautiful sights that I have ever seen was the USS Thresher Flagpole & beautiful Thresher Flag! I was moved to tears as I watched the Flag being ever so slowly raised, then lowered to half staff, in memory of the 129 heroes onboard the USS Thresher that fateful day. Then as the Flag was raised again, & the breeze caught it, I was filled with so much pride, for our loved ones who sacrificed so much, & for the United States Of America, the greatest country in the world! Even now, as I write this, my eyes are filling with tears because I am so proud to be an American! God Bless The Thresher Memorial Project Group & God Bless America!"

Carol (Abrams) Norton, Daughter of Fred Philip "Phil" Abrams  lost on USS Thresher April 10, 1963
