Ground Casualty

SP4 Toussaint L. Dalton Jr. was Materiel Storage and Handling Specialist serving with C Company, Troop Command, Army Depot Cam Ranh Bay, Army Support Command Cam Ranh Bay, 1st Logistical Command, U.S. Army Republic of Vietnam. Work at the U.S. Army Depot in Cam Ranh Bay in Khanh Hoa Province, RVN, was fast-paced as the supply needs for maintaining a combat-ready force were enormous. Materials, supplies, and ammunition flowed from port to warehouse to needy units by the hundreds of tons. Handling this stockage were forklift operators like Dalton whose skill and speed were depended on to keep the flow of goods moving. The work was exhausting and at times dangerous. On October 22, 1970, Dalton sustained fatal injuries at the depot at Cam Ranh Bay when he was accidentally thrown from a forklift. He was killed instantly after being struck by another vehicle. Dalton was 19 years old. [Taken from coffeltdatabase.org and “Spec. 4 T.L. Dalton, Jr., Dies In Vietnam Accident.” The Baltimore Sun (Baltimore, MD), October 27, 1970]

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.
