We at the Navy Memorial will grieve our fallen shipmates by honoring their service. Naval Service is tied to the past: "Don't give up the ship" was Captain James Lawrence's dying command aboard USS Chesapeake in 1813. The entire crew of USS Fitzgerald DDG-62 did exactly that: they did not give up their ship to flooding and seven sailors paid the ultimate sacrifice. Fair Winds and Following Seas.
