God and the soldier

God and the soldier All men adore
 In time of trouble, And no more;
For when war is over, And all things righted,
 God is neglected, ¬The old soldier slighted.

 (Said to have been found on an old stone sentry-box at Gibraltar.
Sometimes the lines are adapted to read "God and the doctor.")
