Remembering an American Hero

Dear SFC Paul Orben Applegate, sir



As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for your sacrifice made on behalf of our wonderful country. The youth of today could gain much by learning of heroes such as yourself, men and women whose courage and heart can never be questioned.



May God allow you to read this, and may He allow me to someday shake your hand when I get to Heaven to personally thank you. May he also allow my father to find you and shake your hand now to say 'thank you'; for America, and for those who love you.



With respect, and the best salute a civilian can muster for you, Sir



Curt Carter

The man we never knew

For a man who we never knew, his picture, his green beret, his flag and his medals were made known over the fireplace throughout our childhood years. A man who we all imagined was strong, brave and audacious. What kind of man was he? We only knew that he loved the life that was given to him. The only life he knew, serving his country. He was a man that was wounded on Hamburger Hill. He was a man that was told he would never walk again. He was a man who we were told never said "never". We were all so young when he died for his country. Yet it was his picture, his green beret, his medals and his flag that reminded us that he should by no means be forgotten but reminded every day that he died for what he loved and he was the Uncle we would have loved to have known.
In loving memory,
Your Brothers children

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.

Mary Frye – 1932

NATIVE AMERICAN PRAYER

It is said a man hasn't died as long as he is remembered. This prayer is a way for families, friends and fellow veterans to remember our fallen brothers and sisters. 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 hush, I am the swift, uplifting rush of quiet birds in circled flight, I am the stars that shine at night. Do not stand at my grave and cry, I am not there, I did not die.
