    We stand with feet planted firmly on rich soil knowing what freedom is. Because of our veterans, I am free to honor God and country without persecution. Where there is injustice, I am free to fight. Where there is silence, I am free to speak. Where there is hate, I am free to love.

    Your love one’s watch is over, may they rest peacefully in the arms of God.

    Joseph “Mustang” Bilodeau
    LCDR USN (Ret)

    Sailors pray,
    for fair winds and a following sea
    The smell of salt in the air,
    the feel of their skin as it’s touched by the spray
    An albatross soaring above,
    dolphins in the ship’s wake at play
    To witness a work of art that only God can create,
    the sunset at the end of day
    At night a million stars in the sky,
    safe anchorage in an islands lee
    When the time comes to die as for all it must,
    to awake in Sailors Heaven where nothing ever rusts
    And always there would be,
    fair winds and a following sea
    By Charles D. Williams
