Cavalla International University is named after the USS Cavalla 244 Submarine (“Avenger of Pearl Harbor”) because of its fierceness in the international waters of Asia during World War II. From 1944-1946, Cavalla was an attack submarine, sinking over 34,000 tons of enemy shipping including the Imperial Japanese Navy’s carrier, Shokaku during the Battle of the Philippine Seas. After the war, she was decommissioned and placed in the Navy Reserve Fleet, New London CT.

The USS Cavalla (SS-244) was awarded the Presidential Unit Citation for actions on her first patrol near the Philippines from May 31 to Aug 3, 1944, under the command of Lt. Cdr. Herman J. Kossler (1911-1988). She was also awarded four Battle Stars for operations in the Pacific. The USS Cavalla is best known as the “Avenger of Pearl Harbor” and earned the prestigious Presidential Unit Citation for sinking the Japanese Aircraft Carrier, Shokaku, a vessel that attacked Pearl Harbor. 

On 21 Jan 1971, the USS Cavalla became a museum ship at Seawolf Park, in Galveston, Texas.  In 1971, the U.S. Navy transferred possession of Cavalla to the Texas Submarine Veterans of WWII as a memorial to the lost submarine USS Seawolf. (Galveston Naval Museum – USS Cavalla, History)
