On this Memorial Day, and every day, we Remember, Respect and Honor our fallen military Heroes. We also honor and thank the surviving military families for their sacrifice and strength. We will never forget.
We remember the 129 souls lost on April 10, 1963, when the USS Thresher (SSN 593) sank.
“There are no roses on sailors graves, Nor wreaths upon the storm tossed waves, No last post from the Royals band, So far away from their native land, No heartbroken words carved on stone, Just shipmates bodies there alone, The only tributes are the seagulls sweeps, And the teardrop when a loved one weeps.”
-Royal National Lifeboat Institution
