the USS Thresher
CONCORD – Governor Maggie Hassan has directed flags to half-staff
on Wednesday, April 10, 2013 in recognition of the 50th anniversary
of the loss of the USS Thresher.
"The loss of the USS Thresher, which was designed, built, and
commissioned at the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard, was a tragedy for the
Navy, our Nation, and especially for the families of her honorable
crew," Governor Hassan said. "As we mark 50 years since that tragic
day, our thoughts and prayers are with the family members of those
129 gallant souls, whose sacrifice we can never truly repay."
