  • Tribute to Rear Admiral Eugene Fluckey

    Missed this earlier this month in USNI e-newsletter.

    "The nation mourns the passing of retired Rear Adm. Eugene Fluckey. Recipient of the Medal of Honor, four Navy Crosses, the Distinguished Service Medal, and the Legion of Merit, he was the most decorated living American. As one of the most daring and successful submarine skippers of World War II, Fluckey revolutionized submarine warfare and sunk more enemy tonnage that any other skipper during the Pacific war. "

    Article and statement from Chief of Naval Operations:

    Winner of Congressional Medal of Honor and landed only combat force (comandos) to land on and attack the Japanese home island before the surrender.
    Boston Strong!

    Requiescat in pace Admiral. :flag:

    They that go down to the sea in ships, that do business in great waters; These see the works of the LORD, and his wonders in the deep. For he commandeth, and raiseth the stormy wind, which lifteth up the waves thereof. They mount up to the heaven, they go down again to the depths: their soul is melted because of trouble. They reel to and fro, and stagger like a drunken man, and are at their wits' end. Then they cry unto the LORD in their trouble, and he bringeth them out of their distresses. He maketh the storm a calm, so that the waves thereof are still. Then are they glad because they be quiet; so he bringeth them unto their desired haven.

    Psalms, 107:23-30, KJV
