Lord, guard and guide the men who fly
Through the great spaces in the sky.
Be with them always in the air,
In darkening storms or sunlight fair;
Oh, hear us when we lift our prayer,
For those in peril in the air!
Eternal Father, Strong to save,
Whose arm hath bound the restless wave,
Who bid'st the mighty Ocean deep
It's own appointed limits keep;
O hear us when we cry to thee,
for those in peril on the sea
"There is no such thing as a bad day when there is a door knob on the inside."
Former Vietnam Prisoner-Of-War & A-4 Skyhawk Pilot, Paul E. Galanti.



Fair Winds & Following Seas to all,
