Happy New Year!
« on: December 31, 2014, 06:53:04 PM »
The following was written by Marvin Schenker, LTJG for the 0000 log entry on 1 January, 1954.

"Today for her we dream" - hopefully soon we as TVA can get back to "and toil producing sweat" as well.......

Happy New Year!

Gil

-----------------

1 January 1954

0000 - 0400 Drydocked in DD#1, Portsmouth NSY

0000 -

This brave fighter's name is TORSK
from under the blue sea
Manned by fine men of whom she is proud,
as they are of she.

Today for her we dream,
and toil producing sweat
So that tomorrow,
her equal will not be met.

We are submariners,
our efforts will ne'r cease
And this night,
we wish the world a lasting peace.

Topside the Winter winds
are cold and frisky,
While we have next year
to celebrate with Whisky

So enter 1954,
and spread good cheer,
And to all hands,
A Happy New Year!

Signed - M. L. Schenker, LTJG USN
