Memorial Day 2016

Thank You…

May GOD receive you, restore you, and give you peace. May GOD watch over those of your household who remain here on Earth, and bless them with peace and comfort. May He guard them and guide them forever. May He whisper to your soul how deeply grateful that I and my household are for all that you did and for all that you gave. I hope that when I make my journey to heaven I might be allowed to salute each of you, shake your hands, and thank you in person….in the blessed name of his son, Jesus Christ.


“Mansions of the Lord” performed by the Cadet Glee Club of West Point

Mansions Of The Lord

To fallen soldiers let us sing

Where no rockets fly nor bullets wing

Our broken brothers let us bring

To the Mansions of the Lord

No more bleeding, no more fight

No prayers pleading through the night

Just divine embrace, eternal light

To the Mansions of the Lord.

Where no mothers cry and no children weep

We will stand and guard though the angels sleep

Through the ages safely keep

The Mansions of the Lord.
