do not stand at my grave and weep

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.

As long as you are remembered you will never truly die....

Final Mission of CPL George R. Anderson

Landing Zone Nancy, located a few kilometers from Quang Tri City, was built by the 1st Cavalry Division around the beginning of 1968 as part of the U.S. build-up of forces in Quang Tri Province, RVN. By mid-August 1968, LZ Nancy was home to artillery and engineer units as well as infantrymen. On the night of August 16th, LZ Nancy was attacked by NVA forces which were able to penetrate the perimeter defenses. Dense jungle and foliage had not been cleared around the edges of LZ Nancy, and the brush-end bamboo and timber thickets that grew right up to the perimeter gave the enemy a covered route of movement and provided a concealed place for observing Nancy’s fortifications. When the attack began, enemy sappers were already within the defensive positions of Nancy. When their mortars began falling, the enemy was able to destroy bunkers and tents before U.S. forces were even alerted. By the time the NVA withdrew at dawn, the bloody fighting had resulted in 20 U.S. killed in action. They included SP4 John D. Strate, CPL George R. Anderson, SGT Darrel E. Barnhouse, PFC David R. Boever, PFC John E. Cumbry, PFC Charles M. Hardy, PFC Otis L. Hartry, SP4 Gary D. Bowling, SP4 Jerry L. Wilson, PFC Elliott L. De Cora, SSGT Jeppie J. Payne, PFC Joseph F. Ribeiro, PFC John L. Began, SP4 Robert M. Cravens Jr., PFC John P. Cook, SP4 Paul L. Huff, SGT Patrick L. Kortesmaki, PFC Thomas L. Mericantante, SP4 Robert M. Reynolds, and SP4 Terry R. Zimmerman. Following the disastrous attack, a swath ranging in depth from 500 to 1000 meters (including 200 to 500 meters on the opposite side of the river bordering LZ Nancy on the south) was cleared in the dense foliage that had previously concealed the approach and departure of the attacking force.
