Rest in peace, Sergeant Major

Job well done.  


I’m asking You God, to give me what You have left.
Give me those things which others never ask of You.
I don’t ask You for rest, or tranquility.
Not that of the spirit, the body, or the mind.
I don’t ask You for wealth, or success, or even health.
All those things are asked of You so much Lord,
that you can’t have any left to give.
Give me instead Lord what You have left.
Give me what others don’t want.
I want uncertainty and doubt.
I want torment and battle.
And I ask that You give them to me now and forever Lord,
so I can be sure to always have them,
because I won’t always have the strength to ask again.
But give me also the courage, the energy,
and the spirit to face them.
I ask You these things Lord,
because I can’t ask them of myself

    The American Soldier knows True Grit.
    The guts, strength of will, utter determination, and moral, resolute courage in the face of pure evil.

    Command Sergeant Major Timothy A Bolyard’s life was taken by pure evil:
    a traitorous, treasonous human being, that is allied with a false god.

    But the God of this world, and the next, is never defeated.
    Good can never be over come by evil.

    The people that did this, think they won; they only dug themselves a deeper hole in the dark pit of the underworld.
    God never rewards those who do evil to people who are trying to help them.

    CSM Timothy Bolyard had six Bronze Stars: sufficient proof his life existed as an incredible example of service
    and self-sacrifice. Nothing can erase that. Nothing.

    No manner of death can erase the good that Command Sergeant Major Timothy Bolyard accomplished in his life;
    and left behind as an eternal legacy here on earth.

    I hope your family reads this, Command Sergeant Major, and knows deep in their heart, that your goodness
    and character of life can never be erased from this, nor the hallowed halls of heaven. May God Bless your
    family and give them Peace.
