Iron Mike and Follow Me

J.M.J. + O.B.T. + M.G.R.*

The U.S. Army Infantry Center at Fort Benning has a World War II monument entitled Follow Me which is officially called "Iron Mike" by the Infantry School. A replica of the Iron Mike monument of Fort Benning was erected on June 7, 1997 at La Fiere (Sainte-Mère-Église) in Normandy, France, as a tribute to American Airborne soldiers of “D-Day”. (Source:

Where have all the Iron Mikes gone?
Long time passing....
Where have all the Iron Mikes gone?
Along long time ago.

We must be willing to march, even at this late hour.
We need to follow St. Michael into spiritual battle!

Sincerely yours in Jesus and Mary,
Mike Rizzio

Imitate Mary
Become like Jesus
Live for the Triune God

Seek the Light of Our Lord Jesus Christ
See you on the High Ground!

* - J.M.J. + O.B.T. + M.G.R. stands for:
Jesus, Mary and Joseph;
O Beata Trinitas;
St. Michael, St. Gabriel and St. Raphael
