This Wolfpack operated from 14 Nov 1941 to 2 Dec 1941.

Notes: Named after Friedrich Wilhelm von Steuben (1730 - 1794)
He was a former German officer, Major General and Inspecting General of General Washington's Army. Contributed to the victory of the Americans over the British in the War of Indepence. Still held in high esteem by the Americans as he is considered in having a great share of the victory as he was the organizer of the American Army, directly responsible for training.
