WWII Sub Service photos

I am not sure who the sailors are or who took the photos.
I have noted what I know about these photos.
My father, Richard Puyear passed away in 1996, these were his. 
He served on the USS Stickleback (SS-415).

If you know any of the men pictured or have questions / comments
you can drop me a line at budman@steinville.com

This is the Sub Vet monument for the USS Greyback (SS208) in Indianapolis at the Heslar Navel Armory, dad built this one. 
As a kid I helped strip out the guts out of the torpedo and get it ready to paint and mount.
As of 2017 the Armory was converted to a High School and I am unsure what has happened to the monument.
