When the Cello Sings Harmony, CPT Joshua M McClimans

Kissed by an Angel, Where Violins are the AngelsVoices,

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)

Joshua M McClimans, 30, of Toledo OH, was killed by sniper fire at Forward Operating Base Salerno, Khost Province, Afghanistan. He was a Reserve Army Nurse and MEDEVAC.

Stand down, Captain

Rest in Peace


 

 

St Catherine of Siena, Patron Saint of Nurses

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 Khost Province is, and what their casualty rate is, visit and support iCasualties.org, Operation Enduring Freedom

  1. I want to thank this man who committed his life to service of his nation, and who gave his last full measure of devotion. May God keep him in His care, and may his family and loved ones find rest and comfort.
