Chaplain:  "Our Heavenly Father, we deem this a fitting time to pay our respects to our departed comrades.  As we stand with bowed heads in reverence to them let us remember the good deeds they accomplished.  Let us revere them as good soldiers who fought a good fight in a just cause.  Let us silently pray for peace, the peace that passes all understanding.  And let us in mind and soul consecrate our hearts and lives to the real America, the land of the free and the home of the brave, the America worth fighting for.  As we stand in this moment of silence to our departed comrades, may we sincerely say, May their souls rest in peace.  Amen."
