Departed Comrades

Fallen Comrade Picture

Taps for you, our Comrades! God rest your eager souls.
Now lie in peaceful slumber, While time around you rolls.
In some great, glad tomorrow, an Angel from the skies
shall sound the call of Reveille -- then waken, Comrades, rise!

Written by Rev. Dr. Ralph C. Robinson while on leave from St. Paul's Lutheran Church in Spring Grove and serving in the South Pacific during World War II in 1943.
