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.
As long as you are remembered you will never die....
I'm proud of our Vietnam Veterans
I HOPE YOUR PICTURE GETS POSTED BECAUSE A WALL OF FACES NEEDS YOUR FACE. THANKS FOR BEING A GRUNT WITH D COMPANY 2ND BATTALION, 12 CAVARLY, 1ST CAVALRY. THIS WAS MIKE SMITH'S UNIT. I HOPE YOU GREETED HIM WHEN HE ENTERED HEAVEN. I ALSO HATE YOU DIED IN THE MONTH OF YOUR BIRTH. REST IN PEACE.
Remembering an American Hero
Dear CPL Peter Allan Arkoette, sir
As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for the ultimate sacrifice that you 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. And please know that men and women like you have stepped forward to defend our country yet again, showing the same love for country and their fellow Americans that you did- you would be proud.
With respect, and the best salute that a civilian can muster for you.
