In Memory of Our Departed Shipmates

 

Below is a list of shipmates, friends and long time Yokosuka and Sasebo residents who are now serving on the Staff of the Supreme Commander.  Names that are underlined have links to pictures.  If you have any names you would like to see added, please EMail me.

 

 

On your eternal voyage, each day will be fair, the nighttime will always be clear with azure seas and a steady breeze, a million stars will help you steer.  Assuming the watch at the Golden Helm, you plow through the billowing clouds, God is on the bridge by your side, smiling and standing proud...

 

Farewell Dear Shipmate ... Farewell

* Indicates addition since the last WESTPACER's Reunion

There is a port of no return

Where ships may ride at anchor for a little space,

And then, some starless night, the cable slips,

Leaving an eddy at the mooring place . . .

Gulls, veer no longer, Sailor rest your oar

No tangled wreckage will be washed ashore.
