The Pentagon announced today that nine more Americans died in Iraq this weekend, bringing the toll for this month to 99.

To honor them, I offer the following, a 1955 alternate verse to the Navy Hymn (Eternal Father, Strong to Save):

"Lord, guard and guide the men who fly

And those who on the ocean ply;

Be with our troops upon the land,

And all who for their country stand:

Be with these guardians day and night

And may their trust be in thy might."

Rest in peace.
