Subject: RE: Stricken Russian Submarine KURSK

Message Detail:
Bill-NT your views are ALWAYS WELCOME HERE and nothing is"off subject".. ALL Navy issues Civil War or Modern are welcome for posting here. This Forum board is an "open deck"................All I ask is we all remain respectful aboard ships!

I respectfully ask all who venture here to please say a prayer for the Russian sailors trapped aboard their sunken sub the KURSK. Please keep them and their families in your prayers. They need a miracle and the Graces of God are never more wanted than now, during this desperate situation. Please, pray together, these are brave men to have survived this long. Thank you Bill-NT, for your message of concern. To remind the rest of us that the sea is a unforgiving place that calls upon on the faith of those who ply their trade and profession there........

And there arose a great storm of wind, and the waves beat into the ship,so that it was now full.
And he was in the hinder part of the ship, asleep on a pillow: and they awake him,and say unto him,
Master, carest thou not that we perish?

And he arose, and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea ,Peace, be still. And the wind ceased,and there was a great calm.

And he said unto them , Why are ye so fearful? how is it that ye have no faith?

And they feared exceedingly,and said one to anouther, What manner of man is this, that even the wind and sea obey him?......St Mark Chap 4 Verses 37-41

What happened aboard the Kursk,serves to underline what those on this board already seem to know and understand: that the service of one's country is fraught with dangers regardless of a state of international or national belligerency.
The men who died,knew the dangers they faced,and chose to accept them.Regardless of how one feels about their politics or perceived politics,their courage was admirable.-------Dan
