Oceana Naval Air Station Chapel
Virginia Beach, Virginia
No useless coffin enclosed his breast
No sheet or shroud was around him.
But he died like a warrior taking his rest
With his martial cloak about him.

Not slowly or sadly was he laid down
In the sea that beheld his story
So we'll carve not a line of his fame little known
We'll just leave him alone with his glory.
With affection, sympathy and my blessing, Father Roland, MSSST
