The Roll Of Honor

This list may not contain all shipmates who have passed away. If you know of a Shipmate who should be on this list, please let us know.  

Taps is the bugle call that beckons us to remember our shipmates who served our country with honor and valor. It is the most familiar of calls and one that reaches our deepest emotions ... To those of us who have worn the uniform and stood in somber silence as we bid a fond farewell ......

Day is done - Gone the sun - From the lakes - From the hills - From the sky All is well - Safely rest - God is nigh.

Feel Free To Give Any Info On Our Departed Shipmates
