On behalf of the United States Submarine Veterans (USSVI), we offer our sincere condolences to Sheri and all of LTJG Oberdorf's family and friends as you mourn his passing. May God whisper peace into your hearts, comfort, and heal them. We are grateful for Jim's service to our country in the U.S. Submarine Service. "Sailor, rest your oar. We have the watch. May you rest in peace and may God bless your loved ones who remain. Thank you for your service to our country."

So, heavenly Father add his name to the roll
Of our departed shipmates still on patrol.
Let them know that we who survive
Will always keep their memories alive.

Bless those who serve beneath the deep,
Through lonely hours their vigil keep.
May peace their mission ever be!
Protect each one, we ask of Thee.
Bless those at home who wait and pray
For their return by night and day.

James Alan Oberdorf, LTJG, US Navy, Now on Eternal Patrol.
Fair Winds and Following Seas Shipmate
His record is now posted online in the Eternal Patrol file on the USSVI website.

Rev. Ray Fritz, National Chaplain United States Submarine Veterans, USSVI.

We are weeping because you are no longer here, but will hang onto the wonderful memories of you growing up. The pain will never go away but it makes it easier knowing we will one day see you again! We love you and are so proud of you for all of your accomplishments in life and for service and sacrafice to your country! X0

This should have been a time to celebrate your birth but instead we mourn your passing. You were loved. May you rest in peace.
God bless you and all of the people who cared for and loved you
You will be missed and always in our hearts

My beloved brother. We were so proud of you and cheered you on every step of the way since you were 6 years old.
My heart is broken but I know that you are sailing through the universe among the stars and planets. Love you always.
