Final Mission of SGT Coley L. Andrews

Early in the morning of December 19, 1966, five 335th Aviation Company UH-1D helicopters from the 1st Airlift Platoon “Ramrods” with a UH-1B “Falcon” Light Fire Team gunship escort began an Aero Rifle movement with B/17 Cavalry troopers. The Ramrods worked in the open, wet marshland west of Bearcat Base along the Dong Nai River in Bien Hoa Province, RVN. After placing troops in position and reinforcing them when contact was made, several Viet Cong (VC) were killed or captured. One of the UH-1D lift aircraft, call sign Cowboy 849, landed to pick up a VC prisoner when an automatic weapon opened up from a concealed position. SGT Coley L. Andrews, 849’s door gunner, was mortally wounded by the fire and rushed to the 93rd Evacuation Hospital at Long Binh where he died several hours later. The aircraft had extensive damage to the fuel system. [Taken from coffeltdatabase.org and “ARMY 1966 335th Assault Helicopter History Part 2” at ttu.edu]

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.
