A Salute... A Prayer...
(Salute the Brits, Brothers. From
them comes this!)
At the coronation of an English
monarch, he is given a sword.
Elizabeth II took it last,
and as she held it before the altar, she heard these
The Few, the Proud, The
Marines: ...have swords, too!
|Receive this kingly
Sword, brought now from the altar of God and
delivered to you by us, the Bishops and SERVANTS
of GOD, though unworthy. With this Sword do
justice, stop the growth of iniquity, protect the
Holy Church of God, help defend widows and
orphans, restore the things that are gone to
decay, maintain the things that are restored,
punish and reform what is amiss, and confirm what
is in good order; that doing these things you may
be glorious in all virtue; and so faithfully
serve our Lord.

John Climath Rice, USMC, was Junior Assistant
Scoutmaster in our Boy ScoutTroop 351, about the year '62 or so.
He was tough & smart---ya just didn't mess with this dude!
Even though he is 2 years senior to me, I got to know him as a
thoughtful and decent kid. It wasn't hard to find the Rices,
because there were 12 of 'em. We all went to the same grade
school. I became aware of John in 1955, as a First Grader.
...was hit on his 1st Day in-country, May 3, 1967, by hostile small arms
fire in Quang Tri, South Viet Nam. The "rubbing" above,
was made at The Viet Nam Veterans Memorial website.

"The Man Who Has Won" was included in Jonely's Memorium
The Man Who Has Won
I want to walk by the side of the man
Who has suffered and seen and knows,
Who has measured his pace on the battle line
and given and taken the blows.
Who has never whined when the scheme went wrong
nor scoffed at the failing plan--
But taken his dose with a heart of trust
and the faith of a gentleman;
Who has struck and sought and given
and scarred with a thousand spears--
Can lift his head to the stars of heaven
and isn't ashamed of his tears.
I want to grasp the hand of the man
Who has been through it all and seen,
Who has walked with the night of an unseen dread
and stuck to the world-machine;
Who has bared his breast to the winds of dawn
and thirsted and starved and felt
The sting and the bite of the bitter blasts
that the mouths of the foul have dealt;
Who was tempted and fell, and rose again,
and has gone on trusty and true,
With God supreme in his manly heart
and his courage burning anew.
I'd give my all--be it little or great--
to walk by his side today.
to stand up there with a man who has known
The bite of the burning fray.
Who has gritted his teeth and clinched his fist,
and gone on doing his best,
Because of the love of his fellowman
and the faith in his manly breast.
I would love to walk with him, hand in hand,
Together journey along,
For the man who has struggled and won
Is the man who can make men strong.

there is room on your page.. Something like Found At Erl's Carved Signs is appropriate. Do not alter these images in
