USS BonefishEvery so often, we as seagoers are reminded that the mundane may rapidly transform into the perilous, even without a human enemy.

It is a selfless story of sacrifice and goes straight to the heart of the discussion elsewhere in these pages about about tradition, service and, dare I say it, ethos.
