USS Flounder

Résumé
USS Flounder (SS-251), a Gato-class submarine, was the only ship of the United States Navy to be named for the flounder. Construction and commissioning Flounder′s keel was laid down by the Electric Boat Company in Groton, Connecticut, on 5 December 1942. She was launched on 22 August 1943, sponsored by Mrs. Astrid H. McClellan, and commissioned on 29 November 1943. First and second war patrols Flounder arrived at Milne Bay, New Guinea, from New London, Connecticut, on 6 March 1944, and 11 days later sailed on her first war patrol, bound for the Palau Islands. Many planes were sighted, limiting her action, and few contacts were made. She returned to Milne Bay to refit, then sailed to Manus for training, and from that base took departure 3 June on her second war patrol. In the Philippine Sea during the assault on the Mariana Islands, Flounder made a sound contact on 17 June which resulted in her sinking the 2,681-ton transport Nipponkai Maru. Escorts immediately
