As you read about this young man who was an inspiration to his brothers of the Sea, continue to read all of the way to the end...

where this gentle seaman unites everyone in the blue pages, and is honored by one of his own.

Rest in Peace, Machinist Mate 2nd Class Joseph Allen Ashley.

The yawn of a dawn will hasten the light

Yes,  Rest your oars Lad....for the sails
are now filled and the sea dances before
ye....  The heart of a sailor...so well
expressed...and much understood.
