I never had the opportunity of meeting this fine Officer in person, but as a veteran I will miss him dearly. May you rest in peace. You and your family are in my prayers. I wrote a poem earlier that I would like to dedicate to a General who will be missed.
A Veterans Prayer
Dear Heavenly Father up above
We ask you fill our hearts with love
We give ourselves to defend our land
Across the seas in blood drenched sand
The battle rages everyday
We ask You guide us along our way
Our brothers and sisters who don't come home
May they rest in Peace and never be alone
We count the days as the end draws near
Trying to stay strong and show no fear
Our families wait with arms stretched wide
For the day we are together side by side
So as the tears fall down our face
We ask you Lord please keep us safe.
