PRAYER TO A FORCE RECON MARINE OR CORPSMAN

___________________________________________________________

THE WORLD FORGETS ITS HEROES

HONORS, GALLANTRY AND VALOR ARE JUST TRINKETS,

WHEREVER MERE MORTALS DWELL.

WE HAVE GATHERED TODAY TO SAY FAREWELL TO

  

STANLEY   WARZYNIAK

  


A FALLEN FORCE RECON MARINE, A SON, A BROTHER,
A WARRIOR,
IN HIS LASTING SLEEP,
WITH BRIGHT BANNERS FLYING PROUDLY AND COMRADES
HAVING SPOKEN OF PAST EPICS,

YOUR BROTHERS ONCE AGAIN RENEW THEIR PLEDGE

TO LOYAL WARRIORS--

"YOU HAVE NOT DIED IN VAIN."

SOON FORGOTTEN BY THE MULTITUDES AS YOU TREAD THE

SHORES OF TIME, WE HAVE COME TO BURY YOU, BUT,

UNLIKE CEASAR--

WE HAVE COME TO PRAISE AND LAUD YOUR MEMORY.

FAREWELL, COMRADE-IN-ARMS AND FRIEND.

SEMPER FI
