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.

Silver Star Medal Award

CITATION:
The President of the United States of America, authorized by Act of Congress, July 8, 1918 (amended by act of July 25, 1963), takes pride in presenting the Silver Star (Posthumously) to Staff Sergeant Michael Frank Dean, United States Air Force, for gallantry in connection with military operations against an opposing armed force in Southeast Asia while serving with the 38th Aerospace Rescue & Recovery Squadron, 3d Aerospace Rescue & Recovery Group, 7th Air Force, on 30 June 1970. On that date, Sergeant Dean, an HH-53C Pararescue/Recovery Specialist, twice penetrated an area of known hostile concentration in a valiant effort to rescue an injured American pilot. Undaunted after being repelled during the first attempt, and with complete disregard for his personal safety, he elected to make a second attempt. As the helicopter neared the downed airman, it sustained severe battle damage, resulting in an uncontrollable fire. Bravely returning the hostile fire until the end, Sergeant Dean lost his life while trying to save another's when the helicopter impacted the ground and exploded. By his gallantry and devotion to duty in the dedication of his service to his country, Sergeant Dean has reflected great credit upon himself and the United States Air Force.
