This submarine was the second to be named after the cuttlefish, having been launched in 1933. Her keel was laid down by Electric Boat Company in Groton, Connecticut. Like most V-class boats, it took part in World War II and won several awards, including the American Defense Service Medal and the World War II Victory Medal, as well as two battle stars. The submarine was decommissioned in 1945 and sold for breaking up in 1947.
