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

I Remember...

I went to school with Alan. The summer of '65 we worked together at Gillum & Bone Lumber Company out on Cottonwood Road. Highway 58 goes through there now. We used to deliver truckloads of sheetrock to construction sites. Hard work for not much money - about $1.35 an hour. I joined the Air Force, he waited to get drafted.

Not Forgotten

Alan-

I didn’t know you, but as a Bakersfield native and a Viet Vet I have to let you and your family know you aren’t forgotten.
I’ve seen your sacrifice.
God bless you and your family.

“Rudy”
173rd (1966-67)

I'll Always Remember

I was drafted with Alan. In basic we shared a set of bunk beds. After AIT Alan loaned me enough money to catch the plane home to Bakersfield from Los Angeles. When I went to pay him back he was on his honeymoon before going to Viet Nam. Not long after that I saw his name in Stars and Stripes as a casuality. I will never forget him.
