Lost at Sea

Just found out about this sad news today...a local kid (graduated from a high school about 10 blocks from my house) who enlisted in the Navy after graduation was lost at sea on Saturday. Today the Navy called off the search for 19 year old Airman Jason Doyle. He fell overboard in the Sea of Japan from the USS Kitty Hawk. A sad reminder that regardless of whether or not they are in a war zone people in the military will be putting their lives at risk for us every day.

Eternal Father, strong to save,
Whose arm hath bound the restless wave,
Who bidd'st the mighty ocean deep
Its own appointed limits keep;
Oh, hear us when we cry to Thee,
For those in peril on the sea!
