True born navy sailor who looked straight in the storms face and let it do its best coz when it was done,he did his best.
diving is the most dangerous job in the navy
whats lost at sea, a navy diver finds it
whats sunk he brings it up
whats on his way he moves it
if he is lucky he dies 200 feet beneath the waves 4 thats the closest he ever gets to being a hero.
