Something a little different, but it happened in my hometown, on the beach that I grew up surfing in Ft. Pierce Florida. .
My Dad’s ashes swam out by fellow frogmen, active duty Navy SEALs. Kinda cool. They jumped in from the helicopters, swam in, grabbed my dad, and swam him out to sea.

ZC, sorry for your loss. Got chills watching that.

Those frogmen are awesome. First supervisor I ever had was a retired frogman. That's what he called himself, anyway. First guy to exit a submarine from a torpedo tube, and was on the Apollo mission where the astronaut blew the hatch in heavy seas and almost took the capsule and frogmen attached to it to the bottom of the ocean. He said that astronaut was lucky to escape with his life. The mission commanders had to hold the frogmen back. They were going to strangle him. Those guys are no B.S.

He was one of a kind. RIP Samuel Stacy Bailey.

Haha... Yeah my old man wanted to strangle me a few times too...

Here is what torpedo tube lock outs looked like.  This was taken in 1954 in Key West.  Looks claustrophobic!  AGHHHH!
