Final Mission of CAPT Alvin J. Dimond

On June 11, 1965, a USAF C-123B (#56-4379) from the 310th Air Commando Squadron hit a mountain during a bad weather resupply mission during a flight from Tan Son Nhut Air Base in Nha Trang while enroute to Pleiku. The crash occurred approximately eight miles south of Holloway Field, Pleiku Province, RVN. Seven Air Force personnel perished in the crash, including pilot CAPT Terrence R. Titus, MAJ Samuel J. Ganci, CAPT Alvin J. Dimond, SSGT Paul G. Dawson, SSGT Merle E. Estes, SSGT Norman C. Williams, and A1C James A. Coy. There were also two U.S. Army personnel lost in the incident, SSGT Jesse H.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear Captain Alvin James Dimond, 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, Sir

Curt Carter

If I should die...remembrances for CAPT. Alvin James DIMOND, USAF...who made the ultimate sacrifice!

If I should die, and leave you here awhile, be not like others, sore undone, who keep long vigils by the silent dust, and wweep...for MY sake, turn again to life, and smile...Nerving thy heart, and trembling hand to do something to comfort other hearts than thine...Complete these dear, unfinished tasks of mine...and I, perchance, may therein comfort you.

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
