Submitted by Kimberly Reed granddaughter of Edith (Mason) Cawood.

In memory of my brother, Leonard Foster Mason, PFC US Marine Corps World War II who died July 23, 1944 during enemy action on Guam. He was awarded the Medal of Honor. USS Leonard F. Mason was commissioned in 1946. It was the rescue ship that picked up Neal Armstrong and David Scott when Gemini 8 splashed down in the Pacific Ocean.

Buried at Sea

Buried at Sea Oh South Pacific Ocean,
Thy depth I do not know
But o'er a precious loved one
Thy blue waters ever flow.

However great thy depth may be
Our love goes deeper yet.
Though long we live upon this earth
We never shall forget.

He volunteered to go and fight,
Along with many others.
They bade goodbye to loved ones dear,
To fathers and to mothers.

Thousands died on foreign soil
And many died at sea,
That freedom's flag might ever wave
O'er the land of liberty.

In our hearts there's a silent prayer,
Now that the battle has been won,
May he not have died in vain
Our beloved brother and son.
