Remembering An American Hero

Dear 1LT Stephen Howard Gravrock, sir

As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for your sacrifice made on behalf of our wonderful country. The youth of today could gain much by learning of heroes such as yourself, men and women whose courage and heart can never be questioned.

May God allow you to read this, and may He allow me to someday shake your hand when I get to Heaven to personally thank you. May he also allow my father to find you and shake your hand now to say thank you; for America, and for those who love you.

With respect, and the best salute a civilian can muster for you, Sir

Curt Carter

Squadronmate and Friend

We were both pilots in the 8th SOS, I was flying on Grock's wing when he was shot down supporting a Vietnamese Army unit with American advisors. I've flown fighters in two wars, this was the worst day of my 27 year flying career by far. He was a great pilot and an even better guy. Cheers,

Thank you!

You will never know how much a debt of gratitude I owe you. Thank you for giving up so much for me so I could have the life you didn't get to have.

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.

Mary Frye – 1932
