Proudly welcoming Northern Illinois and Southern Wisconsin submarine sailors

We support a strong U.S. Submarine Force

Submarine sailors have a special bond that is intertwined with sea stories and memories of unforgettable service to their country. The USS Illinois Base, a new base within the United States Submarine Veterans, Inc. (USSVI), invites you to explore the benefits and camaraderie of membership in USSVI and the friendship available at the USS Illinois Base. We invite current and veteran submarine sailors throughout our region to attend our monthly base meetings. We look forward to meeting you!



Our Purpose

We wish to perpetuate the memory of our shipmates who gave their lives in the pursuit of their duties while serving their country. We want their dedication, deeds, and ultimate sacrifice to be a constant source of motivation toward greater accomplishments.

Join us

Are you a submarine veteran? An active duty submariner? Have a loved one who’s done submarine duty? If so, join us by becoming a member or associate member of the USSVI. We meet in South Beloit, IL the 1st Saturday of every month. We look forward to having you join us!
