Final Mission of AMS1 Harold E. Cowen

On September 23, 1971, a U.S. Navy helicopter UH-1B (tail number 62-04602) from Helicopter Attack (Light) Squadron Three [HA(L)-3] “Seawolves,” crashed during a routine combat patrol approximately 24 miles west of Saigon in Bien Hoa Province (III Corps), RVN. It was believed that the aircraft suffered a main rotor blade separation during flight. The lost personnel included pilots LCDR Lawrence L. Cover and LTJG Arnold W. Barden, and crewmen AMS1 Harold E. Cowen and ADJ2 Charles H. Goldbin. [Taken from coffeltdatabase.org and seawolf.org]

Remembering An American Hero

Dear AMS1 Harold Edward Cowen, 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, Sir

Curt Carter

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.

Mary Frye – 1932
