rest brave soldier

Bob, I was there when you bravely manned the observation post even though we were being shelled by the enemy. You were trying to locate their firing position so that counter-fire could be directed on them when one of their shells exploded 18 inches from your chest. Even though you were mortally wounded you dragged a fellow soldier to safety before collapsing.

NATIVE AMERICAN PRAYER

It is said a man hasn't died as long as he is remembered. This prayer is a way for families, friends and fellow veterans to remember our fallen brothers and sisters. Do not stand at my grave and weep I am not there, I do not sleep. I am a thousand winds that blow, I am the diamond glints on snow. I am the sunlight on ripened grain, I am the gentle autumn rain. When you awaken in the morning hush, I am the swift, uplifting rush of quiet birds in circled flight, I am the stars that shine at night. Do not stand at my grave and cry, I am not there, I did not die

God Bless

Robert,
In one of my classes in Gridley High School in Gridley, Illinois, we are trying to remember all those who gave their lives in sacrifice to our country. It is hard for me to comprehend what it was like for you as you were selflessly fighting for our country, but your act of bravery will never be forgotten. Thank you for this courageous sacrifice that you gave! God Bless you and your loved ones!
Sincerely,
Kaleigh Schlipf
