Stand Down, Sergeant

Rest in Peace

 

 

Give me, my God, what you still have;

give me what no one asks for.
I do not ask for wealth, nor success,
nor even health.

People ask you so often, God, for all that,
that you cannot have any left.
Give me, my God, what you still have.
Give me what people refuse to accept from you.
I want insecurity and disquietude;
I want turmoil and brawl.

And if you should give them to me,

my God, once and for all,
let me be sure to have them always,
for I will not always
have the courage to ask for them.

Corporal Zirnheld

You gave your life so that others may live in freedom. We should not forget your sacrifice.

Sgt Soderlund. Words can’t express our gratefulness for your sacrifice. God will grant you peace, and for your family as well. #SOT
