    For the record:

    The Constitution shall never be construed... to prevent the people of the United States who are peaceable citizens from keeping their own arms. by Samuel Adams

    We the people are the rightful masters of both Congress and the courts, not to overthrow the Constitution but to overthrow the men who pervert the Constitution. - Abraham Lincoln

    With the new day comes new strength and new thoughts. - Eleanor Roosevelt

    A Seaman's Prayer

    Heavenly Father, creator of the seas, Bless us as we assemble for this most solemn remembrance. We give you thanks for all your servants who go to sea in ships and those who have paid the supreme sacrifice by giving their lives in the service of their nation.

    The passing of over 70 years has not diminished our love and gratitude for the thousands who went to sea and never returned, and for our Brother Shipmates who have gone to meet them in your loving, eternal embrace.

    O Father, grant his family today, and in the days hereafter, peace and comfort in the glory of his service to his fellow man, and in the knowledge he sails with you, O Lord, our maker and protector.

    O Eternal Lord God, who alone spreads out the heavens and rules the raging of the seas, receive into your protection all those who go down to the sea in ships and occupy their business on the great waters. Preserve them both in body and soul, prosper their labors with good success, in all times of danger, be their defense, and bring them to the haven where they would be, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

    Biography
    Italian Father married 5x and Swedish/French Mother married 4x. Was in an orphanage with the twins and foster home -things were pretty bad. I was once shot in the back in Chicago. I enlisted in 63 to get out of the area. The first 2-years were an adjustment period they had to break my street habits. After 12 years of service I got out and married to swell Italian Gal who I've been with for 52+ years now.
    We have two daughters and three grand-kids. I'm a strong believer in God and Country. I found making "real friends" was hard to come by. But for some reason I still have a sense of humor. Lifetime VFW member.

    O Almighty Lord God, who neither slumberest nor sleepest; Protect and assist, we beseech thee, all those who at home or abroad, by land, by sea, or in the air, are serving this country, that they, being armed with thy defence, may be preserved evermore in all perils; and being filled with wisdom and girded with strength, may do their duty to thy honour and glory; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
