In Memory of Our Fallen Brothers
To-Date 55 Have Been Identified

A Soldiers Prayer

Almighty Father, Whose Command is over all and Whose Love never faileth, let me be aware of Thy presence and obedient to Thy will. Keep me true to my best self, guarding me against dishonesty in purpose and in deed, and helping me so to soldier and to live so as to stand unashamed and unafraid before my fellow soldiers, my loved ones, and Thee.

Protect those in whose love I live. Give me the will to do the work of a man and to accept my share of responsibilities with a strong heart and a cheerful mind. Make me considerate of those entrusted to my leadership and faithful to the duties my country has entrusted to me.

Let my uniform remind me daily of the traditions of the Service of which I am a part. If I am inclined to doubt, steady my faith; if I am tempted, make me strong to resist; if I should miss the mark, bestow upon me courage to try again. Guide me with the light of Thy truth ~ and keep before me the life of Him in Whose example and deliverance I trust. In the name of my Lord, Amen.

In rememberance of those who have passed on, may you rest in peace forever. You will never be forgotten...SAPPO!
