USS Cincinnati / USSVI

About the Cincinnati Base

The Cincinnati Base was commissioned in 2003 by United States SubVets, Inc. Our meetings are held at American Legion Post 256 located at 897 Oakland Rd in Loveland, OH. Unless otherwise noted, our meetings will be at 1300 on the 4th Saturday of each month. Our meetings are open to submariners and those interested in submarines.


If you know of someone in the Cincinnati area who served on submarines (or still does!)

please tell them about this site.

 USS Cincinnati Cold War Memorial   

The Cincinnati Base has worked with the USS Cincinnati Cold War Memorial along with the Navy and Hamilton County (Ohio) to obtain the USS Cincinnati's conning tower (sail), rudder, The Big Red Machine - the boat's diesel engine, named for the '75 - '76 World Champion Reds.  The pieces are in storage in Cincinnati, since arriving in 2013.  Hamilton County is working to determine a location for the memorial along the riverfront.  We would like to give Joseph Japp Bravo Zulu for leading up this project.
