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.

Misadventure (Friendly Fire)

Operation Cedar Falls was a massive search and destroy operation conducted to eradicate the so-called "Iron Triangle", an area located in close proximity to Saigon which had become a major stronghold of the communist National Liberation Front (NLF) or Viet Cong. During the operation on January 13, 1967, an artillery mishap caused by an error in the plotting of fire data resulted in the deaths of ten U.S. soldiers and over thirty others wounded. The supporting artillery fire landed on a unit of 3rd Brigade, 1st Infantry Division position. Sixteen rounds of 155mm howitzer fire hit the soldiers just as they were clearing a landing zone just west of Ben Cat. The soldiers lost in the incident included SP4 Michael R. Brotzman, SGT Francisco D. Dacanay, SP4 Robert D. Erickson, CPL Bobby G. Goldhagen, PFC William L. Randolph, CPL Weston H. Reese, CPL Richard A. Robb, and SSGT Gerald Stevens. SSGT Roger P. Gallant was medically evacuated but died the following day. PFC Henry J. Drozdowski Jr. was wounded in the abdomen by fragments from the errant rounds. He was medevacked to the 93rd Evacuation Hospital at Da Nang. On the 24th of January, he was returned stateside for treatment, ultimately being permanently retired from the military on disability in November 1967. He endured over 300 surgeries throughout his life due to the devastating injuries he received. He died at age 64 on April 30, 2011, in Warren, MI, as a result of the wounds received in Vietnam. Drozdowski’s name was added to the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall in May 2014. [Taken from coffeltdatabase.org]
