May 22nd, 1968 – USS SCORPION (SSN-589) was lost at sea, off the Azores in the Atlantic Ocean, with a loss of all hands.

The submariner community knows all too well, regardless of the nationality of those who have put to sea in undersea craft, from the TURTLE and the HUNLEY to the USS THRESHER (SSN-593) and the USS SCORPION (SSN-589), know that an accident at sea more than likely does not bless them with any survivors.

A former Army officer and business consultant, Jack Yoest, posted a personal story about his connection to the family of one of the men who never came home, QMCS Frank Patsy Mazzuchi.
