When the Cello Plays Harmony, PFC John F Kihm

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

PFC John F Kihm, 19, Philadelphia, PA, died April 19 in Kandahar Province, He was of 1st Bn, 32nd Infantry Regiment, #rd Brigade Combat Team, 10th Mountain 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.

To see where Kandahar Province is, and what their casualty rate is, visit and support iCasualties.org, Operation Enduring Freedom

    • Thanks Lady P, that’s a beautiful video. One of my boys got a greeting like that when he got home, an entire city in the panhandle of Florida came out to greet him. The Division Rear D Chaplain and our CSM were escorting and both later said there was no way they could keep it together during the procession. I love America.

  1. I want to thank and honor this young man for his ultimate sacrifice in the service of the United States of America. I ask for God’s peace and mercy to rest on the hearts of his surviving loved ones.
