Ground Casualty

At 5:30 PM on December 3, 1967, two recent replacements assigned to B Company, 3rd Battalion, 8th Infantry, 4th Infantry Division, were reportedly horsing around at their base camp with a live grenade when it accidently exploded after it was placed down the other’s shirt. The blast killed PFC Lawrence E. Leiba and critically injured PFC Christopher Andrews. Andrews was taken to the 71st Evacuation Hospital in Pleiku where he later expired.

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 die...

I remember, the day, so well. Twenty three, days, after a major engagment, with the NVA., where we lost, most of the original company. Two, green replacements, playing, with a live, hand grenade. You two, gave us a real scare, only, to find, that both of you fell, as a result, of horseplay. It is horrifying to lose, a comrade to the enemy, but more horrifying, to lose, two, comrades, as a result, of stupidity. Maybe it was God's way, of saving other guys, in future engagments, with the enemy. May God rest your soul, for we shall meet again, someday. GOD'S PEACE ON YOU AND YOUR FAMILY.
