    Bootneck is leaving us in a few hours. May he find his enemy Per Mare, Per Terram. May this deployment seem as short as the last and may God's great hand protect this warrior from harm's way. Godspeed Bootneck and good hunting.

    HOORAH!

    The leave is always too short.

    See you when you get back again Boot, and again remember, let the frenchies volunteer. ;)

    Thank you for your service. I remember the motto on a coffee mug I purchased when I was in Portsmouth, England and was aboard Lord Nelson's flag ship. The quote was "England expects that every man do his duty." I am sure you will make the Queen proud. Speaking as an American, thanks for giving us a hand. This is not a popular war but unfortunately, one that must be fought.

    Boot!

    Your leave was short, your humor long
    And now again, you will be gone
    But before you know it, you'll be back to stay
    To make us laugh, and joke and play
    May God watch over you and your mates
    And send you back swiftly, and not one day late
    Keep about you your wits and be of good cheer
    When you get back on home ground I will buy you a beer!


    Take care and know you will be missed.

    The Royal Marine Prayer:



    O Eternal Lord God, who through many generations hast united and inspired the members of our Corps, grant thy blessing, we beseech thee, on Royal Marines serving all around the Globe. Bestow Thy Crown of Righteousness upon all our efforts and endeavours, and may our Laurels be those of gallantry and honour, loyalty and courage. We ask these things in the name of Him, whose courage never failed, our Redeemer, Jesus Christ.
    Amen.
