In nomine Patris, et Filii, et Spiritus Sancti, Amen.
In pace requiescat CPT Thomspon and SPC Decoteau. Dominus vobiscum.
Sancte Michael Archangele, defende nos in proelio, contra nequitiam et insidias diaboli esto praesidium. Imperet illi Deus, supplices deprecamur: tuque, Princeps militiae coelestis, Satanam aliosque spiritus malignos, qui ad perditionem animarum pervagantur in mundo, divina virtute, in infernum detrude. Amen.
