  1. Dear Christine, family and friends of Dale,
    On behalf of the United States Submarine Veterans, we offer our sincere condolences at Dale´s passing. Please know that you are in our thoughts and prayers. We are always saddened whenever a fellow “Bubblehead” departs on Eternal Patrol. He served with honor on the USS Simon Bolivar SSBN-641.
    To our “Brother-of-the-Phin” we say, “Sailor, rest your oar. We have the watch. Fair Winds and Following Seas.” Thank you for your service to our country.
    Christine and family… “may the Lord of peace himself give you peace at all times in every way. The Lord be with you.” 2 Thessalonians 3:16 (ESV).
    Jim Sandman, FTC(SS) Ret,
