Dear Mary,

I just finished reading “Heroes Beneath the Waves”! What a wonderful tribute to our Submarine Veterans and Our Greatest Generation!!
You have collected a wonderful assortment of submarine stories that truly tell the “rest of the story.” Thank you so very much!
The importance of your book rest in the fact that those American Sailor were able to tell their “story.” Your book completes the vivid history of our Submarine Force.
Thanks so much for your most wonderful efforts. Please know that your book
has been a highlight of my association with SubVets of WWII over so many years.

Warm regards & thanks so much,
Al Konetzni, JR,
Vice Admiral, US NAVY (Retired)
