IN MEMORY

I was Pinging through a wake one day
In the Merry Merry Month of May,
When I was taken by surprise By a pair of BDIs;
A sub was only 200 yards away!

Author, Ron Archibald

This Web Site is Dedicated to all Sonarmen and Sonar Techs who have sailed in the U.S. Navy or Coast Guard.

This page is but one memorial to all of our Sonar Brethren whose Pings are silenced
