Local firefighter Charlie Heflin decided to look in a different cemetery.

He didn’t find anything there either, and had already began walking back to his car when he had a hunch to check one more spot.

Heflin told WFIE:

  5. A Soldier’s Prayer for the Fallen

    To fallen soldiers let us sing
    Where no rockets fly nor bullets wing
    Our broken brothers let us bring
    To the Mansions of the Lord
    No more bleeding, no more fight
    No prayers pleading through the night
    Just divine embrace, eternal light
    In the Mansions of the Lord
    Where no mothers cry and no children weep
    We will stand and guard though the angels sleep
    Through the ages safely keep
    The Mansions of the Lord
