RARE FIVE GALLANTRY AWARDS TO SUBMARINE OFFICER


FOUR GALLANTRY AWARDS WHILE OFFICER ON USS TANG


USS TANG MOST SUCCESSFUL ALLIED SUBMARINE OF WORLD WAR 2 - SINKING 33 SHIPS


USS TANG HAD BEST ALLIED WAR PATROL OF WORLD WAR 2 - SINKING 10 SHIPS - CAPTAIN FRAZEE RECEIVED A SILVER STAR FOR THIS PATROL


CAPTAIN FRAZEE MADE ELEVEN SUBMARINE WAR PATROLS


THE COMMANDING OFFICER OF THE USS TANG RECEIVED THE MEDAL OF HONOR


The medal group consists of: Silver Star with two Gold Stars (World War 2 issue, thick type, wrap brooch); Bronze Star with one Gold Star and Bronze "V" device (World War 2 issue, slot brooch); American Defense Medal with "Fleet" Bar (slot brooch, early issue); American Campaign Medal (early issue); Asiatic Pacific Medal with one Silver Star and one Bronze Star (early issue); World War II Victory Medal (early issue); National Defense Service Medal (early issue).


The First Silver Star was awarded for the first seven war patrols of USS Grayback. The citation reads: For conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity in action. During the first seven war patrols of the U.S.S. Grayback in enemy-controlled waters, you, as officer-of-the-deck, torpedo and gunnery officer, and torpedo data computer operator, performed your duties in an outstanding manner, and greatly assisted your commanding officer in attacking the enemy at every opportunity and in sinking 33,541 tons of enemy shipping, including an escort vessel, in probably sinking an enemy submarine, in probably destroying four enemy barges and in damaging 35,625 tons, including a destroyer. As officer-of-the-deck, your prompt and decisive action upon the sighting of an enemy submarine resulted in a subsequent successful attack on this vessel. As torpedo data computer operator, your calmness and skill in the face of severe enemy counter-measures contributed materially to many of the successful attacks made. Your actions throughout are in accordance with the highest traditions of the Navy of the United States."


The Second Silver Star was awarded for the first war patrol of USS Tang. The citation reads: For conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity as Assistant Approach Officer of the U.S.S. Tang, during the First War Patrol of that vessel in enemy Japanese-controlled waters, from January 22 to March 3, 1944. Skilled in the performance of duty, Lieutenant Commander (then Lieutenant) Frazee rendered invaluable assistance to his commanding officer in delivering aggressive torpedo attacks against heavily escorted enemy convoys to sink four ships totaling over 40,000 tons and in conducting successful evasive tactics during subsequent enemy countermeasures. His devotion to duty reflects the highest credit upon Lieutenant Commander Frazee and the United States Naval Service."


The First Bronze Star with Combat "V" device was awarded for the second war patrol of USS Tang. The citation reads: "For meritorious service as Navigator, attached to the U.S.S. Tang, during the Second War Patrol of that vessel in enemy-controlled waters, from March 16, to May 15, 1944. With our air forces engaged in attacks against enemy-held bases, Lieutenant Commander Frazee performed his duties with skill and efficiency despite heavy shelling from hostile gun batteries on shore, thereby contributing to the success of the Tang in carrying out lifeguard services and in retiring without damage. His devotion to duty was in keeping with the highest traditions of the United States Naval Service."


The Third Silver Star was awarded for the third war patrol of USS Tang. The citation reads: For conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity as Assistant Approach Officer of the U.S.S. Tang, during her Third War Patrol in enemy-controlled waters, from June 8 to July 14, 1944. Skilled in the interpretation of attack phases during each of the nine successful attacks launched against enemy shipping, Lieutenant Commander Frazee contributed directly to the success of his vessel in sinking seven hostile freighters and one seaplane tender for a total of 56,000 tons. Cooly aiding in evading enemy countermeasures, at times in shallow waters, he rendered invaluable assistance to his commanding officer in effecting her escape and avoiding severe damage. His professional ability, courage and devotion to duty reflect the highest credit upon Lieutenant Commander Frazee and the United States Naval Service."


The Second Bronze Star was awarded for the fourth war patrol of USS Tang. The citation reads: For meritorious service as Assistant Approach Officer on board the U.S.S. Tang during her Fourth War Patrol in enemy-controlled waters, from July 31 to September 3, 1944. Displaying excellent judgment in the handling of approach problems, Lieutenant Commander Frazee rendered invaluable assistance to his commanding officer in conducting attacks against enemy shipping which resulted in the sinking of five enemy ships totalling 22,500 tons and damaging a 4,000-ton vessel and during a gun engagement, aided in severely damaging a 100-ton patrol vessel. Capably discharging his assigned duties, he contributed directly to the success of his vessel in evading enemy counter-attacks, at times in extremely shallow waters. His professional ability, courage and devotion to duty were in keeping with the highest traditions of the United States Naval Service."
