    WO1 Deane A. Pomeroy was a U.S. Army helicopter pilot assigned to Headquarters & Headquarters Company (HHC), 52nd Aviation Battalion. On March 24, 1964, WO1 Pomeroy was the co-pilot of a UH-1B helicopter (tail number 62-02017) that crashed when it lost a rotor blade after coming under hostile fire. WO1 Pomeroy was one of four personnel on board injured in the crash, suffering spinal and multiple other injuries. He was medically evacuated to the United States where he died at Letterman General Hospital, San Francisco, CA, on May 30, 1964, from complications due to bilateral bronchopneumonia.

  • Remembering an American Hero

    Dear WO Deane Alva Pomeroy, sir



    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



    Curt Carter

  • Do not stand at my grave and weep

    Posted on 5/30/05 - by Bob Ross
    Do not stand at my grave and weep.
    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.

    Mary Frye – 1932

All of these photos will be showcased in The Education Center at The Wall on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. To learn more about the effort to collect these photos and ensure their faces will never be forgotten, visit www.buildthecenter.org.
