To All of the Family, Friends and Shipmates of Ian Scott Beall,
I know Ian though my son, Dustin Washburn, and I have had conversation with Ian myself. I too, am a fellow shipmate. I remember Ian and his dog and how much he loved his dog. I know that Ian was a great friend to Dustin and all those whose lives he touched. I believe that he was like a brother to Dustin and Dustin treasured their friendship. I am sure this is how he touched all of the lives who had the pleasure of knowing him. I thank Ian for his loyal and faithful service to the U.S. Navy and to this great Country of ours. Ian, you are truly missed. For all those who are grieving his loss, my sincerest heartfelt sympathy and prayers are with you and I pray that God will bring you comfort and strength in the many days ahead. May God Bless You.
