I had a special request from our New Zealand KIWI Division head, Bryan Davies, about having a place on the website for some interaction with others.   So I decided to try something a little different.    I am a simple guy so this is a simple page.  You comment and send it in.  I approve it and it posts up.  Let’s see how that works.

After a couple of posts, I see something that is not working as intended.  If you are responding to a particular post you should click on “reply” in that thread.  If you just post, your post will not connect with the thread but will show up as the latest independent post at the top of the page.  Hope that is clear.

USS ORLECK engages enemy in Vietnam

 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.
