  3. [align=center]The Final Inspection

    The soldier stood and faced God,
    Which must always come to pass,
    He hoped his shoes were shining,
    Just as brightly as his brass.
    "Step forward now, you soldier,
    How shall I deal with you?
    Have you always turned the other cheek?
    To My Church have you been true?"
    The soldier squared his shoulders and
    said, "No, Lord, I guess I ain't,
    Because those of us who carry guns,
    Can't always be a saint.
    I've had to work most Sundays,
    And at times my talk was tough,
    And sometimes I've been violent,
    Because the world is awfully rough.
    But, I never took a penny
    That wasn't mine to keep...
    Though I worked a lot of overtime
    When the bills got just too steep,
    And I never passed a cry for help,
    Though at times I shook with fear,
    And sometimes, God forgive me,
    I've wept unmanly tears.

    I know I don't deserve a place
    Among the people here,
    They never wanted me around,
    Except to calm their fears.

    If you've a place for me here, Lord,
    It needn't be so grand,
    I never expected or had too much,
    But if you don't, I'll understand."
    There was a silence all around the throne,
    Where the saints had often trod,
    As the soldier waited quietly,
    For the judgment of his God.

    "Step forward now, you soldier,
    You've borne your burdens well,
    Walk peacefully on Heaven's streets,
    You've done your time in Hell."[/align]

  13. It was a very hard day, standing watching the coffins as they came off the plane, my family is devastated by what has happened and yet so very very proud of my Brother. He died doing what he loved with guys who were like his extended family, and because of that, my heart and thoughts are with those families also, as we all share the same pain in trying to come to terms with those we have lost.

    To all the staff and personel at RAF Kinloss, you made a hard day easier, you all shared in our grief, and I shall never forget the care you all showed and the respect.

    I Lost one Brother, you have lost Twelve.
     
  14. Great thread FB. Also thanks to pox dr for poem first time i,ve seen that one. To Lab queen condolences to you and the family and special thanks for taking the time to write on here. R.I.P to all those mentioned may they all sleep the peace of the brave. GOD BLESS YOU my brothers.
