A SALUTE TO THE REST OF THE CREW
by USS SLC Veteran
This reunion tonight of our Salt Lake mates|
Is wonderful for me and for you.
But while we renew old friendships,
Let's remember the rest of the crew.
Some of our shipmates live so far away
They just couldn't make it tonight.
Some were not located you know,
And we hope each one is all right.
All served well in the great World War
But some never made it through.
They fought for a cause we all thought just
And they're much a part of us too.
Over the years while we labored on
Some shipmates were lost on the way.
But still they're members of our crew
As they were during the fray.
Let's stand for a moment to honor them all
And recall the great times we knew
On the Swayback Maru in the biggest of wars.
Please, a moment of silence or two.
Lord God, we pray your blessing on them,
And wish they all were here too.
For there's not a full roster tonight unless
We remember the rest of the crew
