Great Victory Has Grim Cost.
Cdr. Ferrier and retired LCdr. Stuart Mason were honored guests at the commemorative service. More than 100 invited guests and visitors from the Puget Sound area paid tribute to the brave personnel who were, in the words of the late CNO Adm. Mike Boorda, "hopelessly outclassed and outnumbered."
Chaplain Steven Eaton led prayers of remembrance for those lost and for those who survived, and Washington State Trooper Barry Kirk played "Going Home" as Ferrier and Mason dropped a floral wreath in honor of those laid to rest in the sea.
