ABSTRACT
The article focuses on U.S. Navy Captain John Philip Cromwell, the highest-ranking submariner awarded with the Medal of Honor in World War II. It states that Cromwell was recognized with the award for his decision to go down with the U.S. submarine USS Sculpin instead of allowing himself to be captured by the Japanese and risk revealing information about the Operation Galvanic and the Americans' interception of Japan's JN-25 codes. The Navy also honored Cromwell by naming a Dealey-class destroyer escort USS Cromwell.
