<p>
<strong>Invictus </strong></p>
<p>
Out of the night that covers me,<br />
Black as the pit from pole to pole,<br />
I thank whatever gods may be<br />
For my unconquerable soul.</p>
<p>
In the fell clutch of circumstance,<br />
I have not winced nor cried aloud.<br />
Under the bludgeonings of chance,<br />
My head is bloody, but unbowed.</p>
<p>
Beyond this place of wrath and tears,<br />
Looms but the Horror of the shade,<br />
And yet the menace of the years,<br />
Finds and shall find me unafraid.</p>
<p>
It matters not how strait the gate,<br />
How charged with punishments the scroll,<br />
I am the master of my fate,<br />
I am the captain of my soul</p>
<p>
&mdash;<em>William Ernest Henley</em></p>
<p>
Retired U.S. Army Lieutenant Colonel <em>John Ells Martling </em>died on December 27, 2015 in Coeur d&rsquo;Alene, ID. He was born at Fort Sheridan, IL to Colonel Merrifield Graham Martling and Agnes Amelia Hamilton Martling. He graduated from Frankfurt Dependents High School in Frankfurt, Germany and attended the University of Arizona on a freshman swimming scholarship. In 1951, he enlisted in the Army as a volunteer officer candidate before entering the U.S. Military Academy at West Point. While there, he was on the swimming and soccer teams. He graduated in the Class of 1955.</p>
<p>
While on assignment in Germany, John was reunited with his college sweetheart, Eleanor Mae Lundberg. They were married in Heidelberg in 1957. In their 25 years together they raised three children and were especially fond of time spent on Morningstar Ranch in Colorado. John and Elle divorced in 1982. In 1987, John met and married Erma Swanson Raeber, to whom he was devoted until her death in 2014.</p>
<p>
During his 24-year Army career, John commanded Infantry units at every level, from a platoon leader in an Airborne Infantry company through battalion commander and deputy brigade commander. Following commissioning, his initial assignment was with the 11th Airborne Division in Augsburg, Germany. In 1958, he received certification as a qualified parachutist at L&rsquo;Ecole des Troupes Aeroportee in Pau, France, where he was the first American to freefall with the French Army.
