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 sunlight 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.

Final Mission of SP4 Larry A. Crisci

On May 17, 1967, B Company, 2nd Battalion, 22nd Infantry, 4th Infantry Division, was participating in a Battalion-sized search and destroy mission conducted in the area southeast of FSB Fang in Binh Duong Province, RVN. Movement through the heavily jungled area was made in M113 armored personnel carriers (APC’s). Second Platoon, B/2/22, was directed to move to the junction of Highway TL-13 and Route 244 to recon a path through the jungle for Battalion to follow for their movement the next day. Progress was slow through the dense foliage until they found a small trail that ran north to the junction. When they reached the junction, the Platoon Leader directed the lead squad to move through the intersection. As the lead M113 entered the junction, it hit an anti-tank mine, killing the driver and two other troops. Four others were wounded. The Platoon Leader, in the second APC, moved up behind the burning track and dismounted his troops. This M113 was hit by a rocket-propelled grenade (RPG), setting it on fire, killing three more men. The troops in the third and fourth M113’s dismounted and began laying down a base of fire. The third M113 moved up, firing its .50-caliber machine gun, and was hit by two RPG’s; however, it did not catch fire. The fourth M113 remained in place, firing its guns to the northwest and northeast. The initial burst of enemy fire had lasted less than a minute, yet they were able to destroy two M113s, damage another, kill seven U.S. troops, and wound eleven. The lost Americans included SP4 Larry A. Crisci, SP4 Robert M. DeDominic, SP4 Lynn C. Hayes, SP4 James R. Michael, PFC Jasper N. Newberry Jr., SP4 Andrew J. Short III, and PFC Roger D. Thompson. B Company moved with all its troops mounted to assist 2nd Platoon. After arriving and securing the area, the wounded were taken to the Battalion laager position for medivac. Only one of the damaged M113s could be repaired and it was towed to the laager position. Later that night, it was discovered that the remains of one of the men killed was left behind. B Company went back to the area in the morning and retrieved the remains, waited for a medivac, then linked up with the Battalion as it headed west to FSB Fang.
