If I should die...remembrances for PFC Janis ABOLINS, USMC...Des Moines's bravest of heroes!!!!!!!!!

If I should die, and leave you here awhile, be not like others, sore undone, who keep long vigils by the silent dust, and weep...for MY sake, turn again to life, and smile...Nerving thy heart, and trembling hand to do something to comfort other hearts than thine...Complete these dear, unfinished tasks of mine...and I, perchance, may therein comfort you.

Remembering our Heroes

Although I never knew you, I thank you for your sacrifice. Without the brave men and women like you, we would never experience the freedom we have today.

NATIVE AMERICAN PRAYER

It is said a man hasn't died as long as he is remembered. This prayer is a way for families, friends and fellow veterans to remember our fallen brothers and sisters.

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 sunlight on ripened grain, I am the gentle autumn rain. When you awaken in the morning hush, I am the swift, uplifting rush of quiet birds in circled flight, I am the stars that shine at night. Do not stand at my grave and cry, I am not there, I did not die.

circa 1932

The Big Brother I Never Got to Know

My oldest brother John, was killed just a few short weeks after my 8th birthday. So, I never got the chance to get to know him very well. The war in Viet Nam took that away. Not only from me, but from my other brothers and sisters as well.
However, his memory will live with us forever. We will always remember that you died for a country that
became your own.
Love, Ingie
