I am so sorry for your loss. I met the Captain at the anniversary of the Cod. He was an amazing person to talk to. We have lost another of the greatest generation, DBF. Chaplain, Requin Base USSVI

I had only met the Captain a few times but the memories will last. I am honored to say I knew him!

I have one consolation that lives with me today.
That God is near to them, in his own special way.
So God in all Your mercy, keep near Thyself the soul,
Of every Submariner, still on his final patrol.

Lord, this departed shipmate with Dolphins on his chest
is part of an outfit known as the best.
Make him welcome and take him by the hand.
You'll find without a doubt he was the best in all the land.

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.

It was a pleasure for my wife, Patti, and I to meet Joseph Adelman in recent years. He generously and enthusiastically helped us tell the story of Old Camp Christopher where Joseph was such a help to his mother, Catholic Services Secretary Mary Grace Adelman. I am happy to share a couple of photos from Joseph's own collection.

I'm certain that Capt. Adelman is sailing on THE ADMIRAL'S boat. As a member of the USS COD crew, I was blessed to have met this fine man. May your memories ease the sorrow. "Sailor, rest your oar."
