“Oh God, thy sea is so great and my boat is so small” This Old Breton prayer was given to new submarine captains by Admiral Hyman Rickover who gave this plaque to the President. President Kennedy favored this quote and used in his remarks at the dedication of the East Coast Memorial to the Missing at Sea, May 23, 1963. He kept the plaque on his desk in the Oval Office.” – JFK Library Photo: @auroraarktika in Greenland #yourshotphotographer
