Posted: Updated:
MARMORA - The Egg Harbor Submarine Veterans Base inducted its newest member into the Holland Club Sunday.

It's a very unique honor to become a member of the Holland Club.  To be eligible you have to be qualified on submarines for more than 50 years.

This year's honoree was Tom Innocente.

He served 5 years as a Navy submariner during the Vietnam War and 28 years in the Army Reserve, including active duty during the first Gulf War.

Innocente also served 32 years with the New Jersey State Police before retiring.

He's the current Commander of the Egg Harbor Submarine Veterans Base.

"It's a brotherhood.  It's a camaraderie and it's a privilege to serve aboard submarines," expressed Tom Innocente, Sr. of Somers Point.

John Holland was the inventor of the American Submarine and the club takes his name as the highest honor for their recipients.
