In remembrance
David Crockett Lowrey Jr MoMM3/c
Still searching.


In remembrance of our shipmates who lost their lives on the afternoon of June 8, 1945. When the USS Salute struck an enemy mine in the south china sea and was destroyed.

We remember these men unto this day, and unto this day we stand boldly in defense of the purpose that they gave their lives for.

Sleep, my sons...
Sleep in the silent depths
of the sea.
Or in your bed of hallowed sod
Until you hear at dawn
The low, clear reveille of God.
