THE FINAL INSPECTIONThe soldier stood and faced God, Which must always come to pass.He hoped his shoes were shining,Just as brightly as his brass.'Step forward now, you soldier,How shall I deal with you ?Have you always turned the other cheek ?To My Church have you been true?' The soldier squared his shoulders and said,'No, Lord, I guess I ain't.Because those of us who carry guns,Can't always be a saint.I've had to work most Sundays,And at times my talk was tough.And sometimes I've been violent,Because the world is awfully rough. But, I never took a penny,That wasn't mine to keep...Though I worked a lot of overtime,When the bills got just too steep. And I never passed a cry for help,Though at times I shook with fear.And sometimes, God, forgive me,I've wept unmanly tears.I know I don't deserve a place,Among the people here.They never wanted me around,Except to calm their fears. If you've a place for me here, Lord,It needn't be so grand.I never expected or had too much,But if you don't, I'll understand.There was a silence all around the throne,Where the saints had often trod.As the soldier waited quietly,For the judgment of his God. 'Step forward now, you soldier,You've borne your burdens well.Walk peacefully on Heaven's streets,You've done your time in Hell.' Author Unknown~

Elizabeth Gilmore came to America in 1776 from Ireland. Inspired by the revolutionary cause, she and her sister Anne enlisted as nurses in the Continental Army. Both served at Valley Forge during the long, hard winter of 1777-78 where Elizabeth met John Berry. For four years after the war, Elizabeth was engaged as a ranger, carrying her rifle and serving as a scout. She married Berry in 1787 and settled in Hickory. Her pay records, preserved in the Pennsylvania Archives, title her as "Ranger of the Frontier" and she is credited with fighting in several battles.*****************thank you for your service
