The Last Roll Call

This is a final tribute paid by soldiers to their fallen comrade. It has its origin in the accountability roll call conducted by the unit First Sergeant following combat. Although sometimes painful to listen through, the Last Roll is called with the conviction held by soldiers that all unit members will be accounted for, and none will ever be forgotten. Although the Last Roll Call, demonstrated in this training, bears all the resemblance of the act, it is the Camp Commander who has the final say so as to the ceremony conducted by his camp, if any.
