In summer of 2022, as National Chaplain of United States Submarine Veterans, Inc (USSVI), I was asked to “hire” a choir and record a new version of the Navy Hymn “Eternal Father”. A sailor from Arizona contacted me with suggested lyrics for the current “submariner’s verse”. I supplied the photos.
Feb 16, 2023 – Mission Accomplished…
This is the finished work…a beautiful way to honor the sailors who serve, who have served, and who died while serving on submarines in Harm’s Way. The video is linked on the USSVI website for local chapters (bases) of submarine veterans around the country to use in their Tolling of the Boats Ceremonies.
