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.

Final Mission of SP4 Jesse C. Felder

SP4 Jesse C. Felder was an Airborne-qualified infantryman serving with A Company, 2nd Battalion, 503rd Infantry, 173rd Airborne Brigade. On June 24, 1966, the 173rd Airborne Brigade was deployed on Operation Yorktown, a search and destroy operation southeast of Xuan Loc in Long Khanh Province, RVN. The mission was to locate and engage Viet Cong and North Vietnamese Army forces in the area. On the afternoon of June 28th, A Company set up an overnight defensive position in some rubber trees adjacent to a road used by civilians. At daybreak the following morning, their location was hit by one or two mortars, killing Felder and wounding another. The precision of the attack was remarkable as the round or rounds landed directly inside the U.S. position. It was afterwards surmised that a civilian pushing a bicycle on the road the day before with white tape around the tire was actually counting wheel revolutions, calculating the distance to target for the Viet Cong mortar team. Felder’s death came on the same day in which ten of his comrades were killed when A/2/503rd made contact with a main force Viet Cong regiment many times its size.
