SOUTH CHINA SEA (Jan. 24, 2008) – USS Pasadena (SSN 752) Commanding Officer Cmdr. Doug Perry leads a ceremony bidding farewell to Rear Adm. Eugene Fluckey. Perry read a few excerpts from “Thunder Below!” an account of late admiral’s accomplishments, just before Executive Officer Lt. Cmdr. Lee Sisco scattered his ashes into the South China Sea from the Pasadena, a Los Angeles-class nuclear-powered attack submarine. The ashes were scattered at the same location where Fluckey and his crew rescued 14 allied POWs stranded at sea more than 60 years ago. Fluckey, a decorated World War II hero, is a submarine icon best known for his Pacific campaign exploits during World War II aboard USS Barb.
