  • USS Trigger (SS-237) was a Gato-class submarine, the first ship of the United States Navy to be named for the triggerfish. Trigger's keel was laid down on 1 February 1941 at Mare Island, California, by the Mare Island Navy Yard. She was launched on 22 October 1941, and commissioned on 30 January 1942, with Lieutenant Commander Jack H. Lewis in command. The submarine sailed for Hawaii on 22 May and reached Pearl Harbor the following week. She sortied for Midway Island with Task Group 7.2 on 29 May in anticipation of a Japanese attack on that island. Her station during the ensuing Battle of Midway was northeast of Midway, and she remained there without contacting any enemy shipping until she was ordered back to Pearl Harbor on 9 June.
