Stand Down, Soldier

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

Every time I read one of these obituaries, St George, I’m struck again by how young they are. They’ll never have a chance to live out the fullness of their lives, yet they died knowing this was a risk. Still, they gave their all.

How my heart aches for your family Spc Taylor. You, my Fallen Warrior & Hero are resting easy in the arms of the angels now. Your ultimate sacrifice will never be forgotten and God will grant your loved ones solace.
