Muskogee War Memorial Park
3500 Batfish Road, Muskogee, OK 74402 - United States
The Muskogee War Memorial Park is home to the USS Batfish. The USS Batfish is a highly decorated World War II submarine responsible for destroying three enemy submarines in seventy-six hours, a feature still unmatched.
The Muskogee War Memorial Park engages visitors to travel through the Batfish reliving the life of a World War II submariner in the Pacific on a war patrol. Additionally, the facility houses a 2000 sqft. museum dedicated to preserving the legacy of the Batfish, as well as the memory of soldiers throughout American history.
The U.S.S. Batfish SS-310
he famed submarine was a powerful U.S. weapon during World War II. Named for a ferocious West Indian fish, the Batfish sank 15 Japanese vessels during the war, among them three submarines in just 76 hours. The latter accomplishment has not since been matched and U.S.S. Batfish to this day remains the most successful submarine killing sub in history.
Additionally, we will have a 45ft. piece of the USS Oklahoma.
