The Cello Sings Harmony, SPC Joseph A Kennedy, 25

Kissed by an Angel, Where Violins are the Angels’ Voices,

and the Cello Sings Harmony….

For they swore by the Holy Water,
They swore by the salt they ate,
That the soul of Lieutenant Eshmitt Sahib
Should go to his God in state;
With fifty file of Burman
To open him Heaven’s gate.

(Kipling)

Stand down,  Soldier

Rest in Peace

SPC Joseph A Kennedy, 25, of St Paul, MN died April in Helmand Province of injuries sustained when enemy forces attacked his unit. He was of 2nd Bn, 2nd Infantry Regiment, 3rd Brigade Combat Team, 1st Infantry Division

Lord, we ask your blessing today as we gather to pay our respects to another American serviceman/woman/hero. It is our duty and our honor to gather together to honor this fellow American. Give strength to his/her family in their time of grief. Keep watch over our troops deployed through out the world and also here at home, as well as their families. The price of freedom is a cost borne by few for the benefit of many. Too often, we take for granted the freedoms that we enjoy, and it is at times like this that we realize that freedom is never free. We would also ask your blessing on us as we travel back to our homes, and we thank you, Lord for this day. Amen.

  1. To Fallen Comrades.

    The First Infantry Division, known as The Big Red One for its shoulder sleeve insignia, is a storied unit. Organized in 1917 they were deployed to France as the First Expeditionary Division, then renamed the First Division once in France. While parading through Paris on July 4th 1917, the unit passed Lafayette’s Tomb where a member uttered the famous quote, “Lafayette, we are here.” Some damn fine Soldiers wear the Big Red One.
