I know this isn't about Whalers, but Jim's post reminded me of a compilation of poems that my father put together while he was a POW in Germany after his B-17 was shot down. I thought this one was meaningful considering our current military activities.
Lord guard and guide the men who fly,
Eternal Father strive to save,
Most loved member of the crew,
Guide them well upon their way,
Lord guide and guard the men who fly,

Eternal Father Strong To Save was a hymn we sang in Boot Camp.(San Deigo, 1987 Semper Fi!) Don't remember all the verses, maybe this poem is from one of the verses? I've only seen it in military song books. Lets pray this generation can gain comfort from it like I'm sure your father did.
