Eternal Patrol


This memorial is dedicated to submariners who remain on "eternal patrol" from their service in WWII. It gives me shivers just to think about what that means and these men who gave the ultimate sacrifice.

As B SQUARED wrote, so many today have no clue.

Here is the tolling of the boats ceremony at the U.S.S. Pampanito, a restored WWII submarine in San Francisco.

Glad they are being remembered for their service.

Je ne peux pas m'empêcher de penser aux premières 15 minutes de 'Saving Private Ryan'. Ca n'a rien à voir avec les sous-mariniers et pourtant, c'est ce à quoi je pense.
