On behalf of the United States Submarine Veterans (USSVI) and to Webb (Avalee) and Steve (Kathy), and all of Charles's family and friends, we offer our sincere condolences in this time of loss and mourning. Our prayer is that God will bless you with peace, comfort you, and heal your broken hearts. We are especially thankful for Charles's service to our country aboard the battleship USS Nevada BB-36 SA 1935-36 and submarine USS S-33 SS-138 SN(SS) 1936-37. To our “Brother of the Phin” we say … "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.

Charles Hilaire Smith, SN(SS), 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.

Dear Webb & Avalee, Was very sorry to hear of Charles passing. I had only met him a few times when I was your neighbor back in the 80's. My prayers are with you! DAVE WITT
