In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.
Beyond this place of wrath and tears
Looms but the Horror of the shade
And yet the menace of the years
Finds, and shall find, me unafraid.
It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate
I am the captain of my soul.

From what I read, it sounds like the Admiral and Cass might have crossed paths in Korea.

Fair winds and following seas Sir!

Indeed - truly incredible life. I wonder if Admiral Lyon and Cass knew each other?

RIP, Sir. Thank you for a lifetime of service.
