|46k||Salmon (SS-573) returned to San Diego on 20 December 1962 and became flagship of Submarine Flotilla 1; and, in addition to that distinction, was awarded the Golden "E" for excellence in battle efficiency for the past five consecutive years, which rated her as the leading submarine of her division. Salmon was the first submarine to earn a Golden "E" and was to better that record by winning hash-marks signifying retention of that status during 1963 and 1964.||USN photo courtesy of Robert Hurst.
