Content Description: 

From 25 July 1943 to 27 August 1945, U.S.S. Balao served in the Pacific Ocean. Her flag shows that Balao destroyed one warship and nine merchant vessels during here ten patrols. Postwar assessments, however, reduced the claim to seven Japanese ships totaling 36,500 tons plus an additional 1,100 tons of enemy small craft. For her services in World War II, Balao received nine battle stars. Balao's flag was designed by a Disney artis at the request of Master Machinist's Mate 3rd class William G. Hartley in 1945.
