\"Though a Sailors strength is forged by the power of the sea, even heroes fall. And if they do, we need devoted professionals ready to assist. As part of the Navy Casualty Assistance Division, Navy Morticians are charged with providing dignity, honor, and respect for Sailors and Marines who have made the ultimate sacrifice. The Navy is the only branch of the military that employs its own morticians. Our Sailors have devoted their lives to defense; it is only right that we find the best caretakers to defend their legacy. #GDJULY
