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

Old Friend

On the night before my brother and I left for Vietnam, my parents had a going away party. Some of us spent the night on the floor in front of the fireplace in my parent's home. It was 1968 and we were all newly sworn in-some of us Navy and some Army. Before we went to sleep, we talked about going to Vietnam at the same time and thought it was pretty neat. Dean was leaving in a few days for Vietnam. The next morning as my brother and I put on our uniforms to return to the USS Intrepid, Dean went home and donned his Army dress uniform and came back to ride along to the airport. Dean was proud of his uniform. The trip to Vietnam took my ship approximately 30 days. By the time we reached Yankee Station, Dean had already perished in Binh Doung. We received this sad news on our first mail call on station. We will never forget you Dean and thanks for your sacrifice.

Remembering a very young friend.

I was with Dean in Vietnam, and he was my only friend from home. The night before he was killed, we were talking about what we planned to do to celebrate together when we returned to the Baltimore area. It took me almost 20 years to work up enough courage to go and find his name on "The Wall". Another 3 years would pass before I was able to go to visit his grave at Arlington Cemetery. While I was there, I noticed something that shocked me. All of the graves that I saw within several rows in any direction near his were of young Vietnam hero's even younger than Dean. He had stopped being a teenager just 6 weeks before he died. We can never forget our American Hero's who gave everything so that we could have everything. I'll never forget you Dean, and I won't let anyone else forget you either.
