Going to dedicate a book I am writing to Craig

Dedicated to
CPL. Craig Phillip Averill
Born April 27, 1948
Killed in South Vietnam March 26,1968
I met Craig I believe in 1963 or 1964 when he moved into the neighborhood in San Diego California. The guy was unreal, so soft spoken, humble but built like the incredible hulk. He put the block bully in his place. Broke up fights between me and my younger brother and gave it one hell of a effort when I was teaching him to surf. I remember those cut off jeans that truly made him look like the incredible hulk but what I miss is the gentle, kind thoughtful soul that was Craig Phillip Averill….Jon Ambrosia

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.

As long as you are remembered you will never truly die....

HOME OF THE BRAVE

Although I did not know you, I honor your name. Although I did not know you, I honor your history. Although I did not know you, I honor your service, because without you, I would not be free. I was 7 years old when you honored your country with your life. I am now 58 years old, because you were a citizen of the Home of the Brave.

There is seldom a day that goes by that I do not think about you. I will always remember witnessing the explosion that wounded you and seeing you for the last time as you were being hoisted up to the medivac. As bad as you were wounded I knew you were going to make it! At our reunions your surviving brothers honor you with great reverance.
I am looking forward to seeing you again. Peace be with you
Strike Force!
