 They shall grow not old, 
        as we that are left grow old; 
     age shall not weary them, 
 nor the years condemn. 
          At the going down of the sun 
and in the morning, 
       We will remember them.

 Rest your head now, weary soldier. 
Cast your weapons to the ground. 
   Close your eyes and feel the peace, 
the light of Jesus fold around. 
Heed not our earthly battle cries, 
there is no post for you to stand, 
so rest now as he carries you 
within his loving hand.
Do not look back upon us, 
 disregard our selfish tears, 
           walk in the sunlight of the spirit,
free of war or pain and fear. 
  Your duty here is done now, 
as ours will someday be, 
 so go him now to places 
 only heroes see.

He ranked quite high in his class at boot camp at Camp Pendleton even though he completed his final humps with a broken foot," said his mother, Barbara Ahlquist. Ahlquist, 23, of Creede, Colo., died Feb. 20 when he tripped an IED while guarding a Medivac helicopter in Anbar province.





"The Mansions of the Lord"
Words by Randall Wallace
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
in the mansions of the Lord
Where no mothers cry and no children weep
We will stand and guard tho the angels sleep
All through the ages safely keep the mansions of the Lord

Lay me down in the cold cold ground
Where before many more have gone
Lay me down in the cold cold ground
Where before many more have gone

Once a year say a prayer for me
Close your eyes and remember me
