Shipmates On Eternal Patrol


LEST WE FORGET

OVER A THOUSAND SAILORS MADE PATROLS ON THE USS ALEXANDER HAMILTON. ALL ARE OUR SHIPMATES EVEN THOUGH WE MAY NOT KNOW THEM PERSONALLY, WE ALL HAVE ONE THING IN COMMON...WE SAILED ON ONE OF THE FINEST BOATS IN THE US NAVY. EACH YEAR THERE WILL BE FEWER OF US AND ONE DAY, NONE. BUT UNTIL THAT DAY, LET US REMEMBER THOSE SHIPMATES WHO ARE ON ETERNAL PATROL.





LEST WE FORGET......THE BELL TOLLING CEREMONY WILL BE PART OF EACH REUNION TO REMEMBER THOSE WHO HAVE GONE BEFORE:

AS WE SIT IN SILENT PRAYER
WITH THOUGHTS THAT USED TO BE,
WE'RE SADDENDED THAT OUR FRIENDS ARE GONE
BUT WE KNOW THEIR SOULS ARE FREE.
WE REMEMBER THEM FOR WHAT THEY WERE,
OUR PRAYERS GO OUT TO EACH OF THEM
WHENEVER THE BELL IS TOLLED.
