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....

Ayd Station Ca Lu, Highway 9

JJ was Senior Corpsman of Lima Company 3rd Battalion, 3rd Marines in May of 1967. When it came time for my R&R to Japan on May 10th I did not have a khaki uniform which was required to be worn, so he lent me his. I returned from R&R on the 16th and was due to be back with 3/3 in Dong Ha on the 17th. Wanting to remain in Da Nang for another day I contacted the 3/3 Battalion Aid Station and JJ approved my extra day. That night Dong Ha experienced heavy incoming rockets and the 3/3 compound was took several hits. One of the rockets hit in a trench that the Corpsmen from the BAS were sheltering killing JJ and two others and wounding ten others. If JJ had not granted me permission to stay in Da Nang I would have been next to him in that trench.
At the time of his death, Lima Company in Ca Lu was establishing a medical clinic for the local people, which was being built by the Montagnards. When it was completed in June, we named it the Ayd Station for JJ.
Semper Fi.
