I was always moved by this tribute to his friend.

I was on Sub Base that day.  The next day the chapel bell rang all day and no once cared.  We had a sonarman who just reported aboard off the 593.  He was a mess but 2 months later he went to sea with us. 
I never heard a single guy who gave up his dolphins.

This TRIBUTE VIDEO has been around for a number of years.  I saved a copy on my computer, but now see that it is in the YouTube library once more.  HAND SALUTE is all I can add.
