The USS Seattle AOE-3 ship's bell is a source of pride for all USSSVA members.
The ringing of the bell signify our members arrival adds that extra touch which allows our pride to show.
The ringing of the bell during the time we honor our shipmates that have preceded us in death adds an extra moment of remembrance as we allow the echo of the ring to drift away.
