Guardies down in a chopper crash off Point Clear in Alabama. Say a prayer.

When we over-estimate our ability ... or something breaks ... or we just plain F*CK UP ... when the seas turn the minutes to hours ... what do we pray to see ...

A orange helicopter overhead ... a boat/ship on the horizon w/ a orange diagonal stripe on it's bow ...

... like the US Marines who's heros are the US Navy Medical Corpmen who are w/ them in combat ... ours are "COASTIES" ...

MAY GOD HOLD THEM IN THE PALM OF HIS HAND ....

MOBILE, Ala. (AP) – U.S. Coast Guard officials said they've recovered the bodies of two of the three crewmembers who had been missing since a helicopter crashed in Mobile Bay in Alabama.

They suspended the search and rescue and are now conducting salvage and recovery.

No humor today. I have too many friends and now children of friends that could be.
