CDR Scott Harrington, fellow submariner and all around shining example of the type of man we all hope to be, passed away Saturday 13 SEP, due to complications from Cancer treatment.

He was my advisor, academically and on all things Navy, here at the Army Command and General Staff College. To say he was an exceptional officer would be insufficient. To say he was larger than life comes close. He was an incredible person to be around. Lively, energetic, and eager to help.

Joel over at at TSSBP has a much better write-up on this incredible man.

Do him the honor and give it a read.

Eternal Father, strong to save,
Whose arm hath bound the restless wave,
Who bidd’st the mighty ocean deep
Its own appointed limits keep;
Oh, hear us when we cry to Thee,
For those in peril on the sea!

Lord God, our power evermore,
Whose arm doth reach the ocean floor,
Dive with our men beneath the sea;
Traverse the depths protectively.
O hear us when we pray, and keep
Them safe from peril in the deep.
