Remembering An American HeroPosted on 11/6/13 - by Curt Carter firstname.lastname@example.orgDear A1C Tony Curtis Foster, sirMORE
As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for your sacrifice made on behalf of our wonderful country. The youth of today could gain much by learning of heroes such as yourself, men and women whose courage and heart can never be questioned.
May God allow you to read this, and may He allow me to someday shake your hand when I get to Heaven to personally thank you. May he also allow my father to find you and shake your hand now to say thank you; for America, and for those who love you.
With respect, and the best salute a civilian can muster for you, Sir

Do not stand at my grave and weepPosted on 7/22/05 - by Bob RossDo not stand at my grave and weep.MORE
I am not there; I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow,
I am the diamond glints on snow,
I am the sun on ripened grain,
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning's hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry,
I am not there; I did not die.

After graduating from West Philadelphia High School in 1966, Foster briefly attended Community College of Philadelphia. He enlisted in the Air Force in 1967 and was thinking of going back to college to become a history teacher. After learning that it would cost more than $1,000 to fix his car, Foster volunteered for a second tour in Viet Nam and planned to use the extra combat pay he would receive to buy a new car. The 21-year-old airman first class, a security policeman with the 37th Combat Security Police Squadron, died in Binh Dinh Province on December 5, 1969. He was survived by his parents and two sisters.
