Your problems and health are now at ease as you join many shipmates you had during your service who have gone before. Farewell as you now enter the kingdom of the Great Mariner.

There was a silence all around the throne
Where the saints had often trod
As the Navy Man waited quietly
For the judgement of his God
'Step forward now, you Sailor
You've born your burdens well
Walk peacefully on Heavens streets
You've done your time in hell
