The USS IREX SS-482 Newsletter

History of the IREX SS-482 Newsletter

The USS Irex SS-482 Newsletter was founded by Ron Liles (USS Irex 1945–1948), and he remained its editor until he went on eternal patrol in 2000.

Wally “Russian” Krupenevich (USS Irex 1951–1952) had assisted Ron with editing and contributed articles from 1994 to 2000. In January 1999 he became editor and continued until his death in June of 2007.

Al Hahn (USS Irex 1957–1960) and his wife Terry became the editors of the USS Irex SS482 Newsletter in June 2007.
