This web site is dedicated to the men who served aboard the Orleck during its 37 years of service.
Almighty God, ruler of the sea, may thy grace and rich blessings vest upon the officers and men who serve in this ship. Let thy presence and power go with them as they defend their country both overseas and at home. Keep them in Jesus’ name. Amen.
This prayer was written inside the ship’s Bible by Chaplain Thomas Gary Hawkins at the USS ORLECK commissioning ceremony 1945. This same prayer was read at the decommissioning ceremony in 1982.
