Gulls veer no longer, sailors rest your oars.

No tangled wreckage will be washed ashore.

Shipmate Captain Charles Bowers Momsen, Jr., rest your oars.

Helen served as Matron of Honor for her Aunt, The Honorable Evelyn Momsen Hailey in July of 2003 when the USS Momsen was christened. The USS Momsen was commissioned August 28, 2004 and is a member of the Pacific Fleet, homeported in Everett, Washington.

Helen was an invited guest and speaker at a special ceremony at Arlington National Cemetery on Armed Forces Day in 2005 honoring her grandfather, Admiral Charles B. Momsen as the Armed Forces Serviceman of the Year. His grave will be decorated on each holiday honoring his service and his selection for this honor.

Captain Charles Bowers Momsen, Jr, son of Admiral Charles Bowers Momsen, for whom the ship was named, was laid to rest at sea in the Pacific Ocean where Strait of Juan de Fuca, Haro Strait and Roario Strait meet off of Whidbey Island, Washington.

There is a port of no return where ships may ride at anchor for a little space.

And then, some starless night, the cable slips, living only an eddy at the mooring place.

Gulls veer no longer, sailors rest your oars.

No tangled wreckage will be washed ashore.

Shipmate Captain Charles Bowers Momsen, Jr., rest your oars.

In November of 2009, Helen traveled to Groton, Connecticut and was a member of the Official Party with Rear Admiral Paul J. Bushong and Congressman Joe Courtney of Connecticut that cut the ribbon at the dedication of Momsen Hall, a new escape trainer at the Naval Submarine School in Groton, Connecticut. This facility trains submariners, teaching them what to expect from the physiological effects of pressurized submarine escape.

Captain Charles Bowers Momsen, Jr, son of Admiral Charles Bowers Momsen, for whom the ship was named, was laid to rest at sea in the Pacific Ocean where Strait of Juan de Fuca, Haro Strait and Roario Strait meet off of Whidbey Island, Washington.

There is a port of no return where ships may ride at anchor for a little space.

In November of 2009, Helen traveled to Groton, Connecticut and was a member of the Official Party with Rear Admiral Paul J. Bushong and Congressman Joe Courtney of Connecticut that cut the ribbon at the dedication of Momsen Hall, a new escape trainer at the Naval Submarine School in Groton, Connecticut.

(Read more about her grandfather in The Terrible Hours by Peter Maas).

Helen served as Matron of Honor for her Aunt, The Honorable Evelyn Momsen Hailey in July of 2003 when the USS Momsen was christened. The USS Momsen was commissioned August 28, 2004 and is a member of the Pacific Fleet, homeported in Everett, Washington.

Helen was an invited guest and speaker at a special ceremony at Arlington National Cemetery on Armed Forces Day in 2005 honoring her grandfather, Admiral Charles B.

No tangled wreckage will be washed ashore.
