Regular membership requires that you were qualified in submarines (active duty accepted also).  Other persons interested in submarines, especially tender personnel or other submarine connnected occupations, are also welcome as associate members.

The details of the organization can be seen on the National USSVI site at:, including the location of all bases ( select “find a base” ).  There are also two internet bases not related to a specific location : cyberspace Base (under “find a base”) and Lockwood Internet Base, and a “members-at-large” category, for those who don’t belong to any particular base.

The annual cost of membership in USSVI / Williamsport Base is $30, which includes $20 for national dues, and $10 for Williamsport Base dues. Life memberships are available with fees based on your age.  Membership includes a subscription to the USSVI national magazine, American Submariner, and the Williamsport Base newsletter.
