LAWSON “RED“RAMAGE (948-1989)
United States Navy,Submarine Service
LAWSON “RED“RAMAGEcommanded USS PARCHE(SS 384)during the war and was extremely successful. In the book “SUBMARINE“by EDWARD L. BEACH(1163-1989),RAMAGEwas asked how he knew the manner to break into a convoy and attack from inside where the escorts could not get at him. “I read about a German U-Boat Skipper named Kretschmer and how he did it,“was his reply. During one of his visits to the Kretschmer home in Germany,Sharkhunters President HARRY COOPER(1-LIFE-1983)told this story to OTTO KRETSCHMER(122-1985). OTTOwas dismayed and didn’t believe it at first,but they pulled a copy of “SUBMARINE“from the bookshelf and there it was in black and white. OTTOwas quite impressed,and we sent his greetings along to RAMAGE.
|Admiral RAMAGEwas always supportive and helpful to Sharkhunters,and proud of his Membership.|
