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 silence all around the throne, Where the saints 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."
To all those who have served, God bless everyone of you
ALL FOR ONE

Mar and April 1968
Served with A/1/40 as A62(#2 FO Team) with Hal Warnock as my Recon Sgt. Would like to talk with anyone that remembers me or Hal or was there then. With 1/40 being a bastard unit and being an FO I didn't get to meet many people on the guns. It's been a lonely 32 years, with all my buddies having reunions and stuff and my unit being so small. This web page is great, it's like coming home.
