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 SP5 Melvin Green

SP5 Melvin Green and SP4 Ronald G. Quinn were vehicle mechanics serving with the 545th Transportation Company. At 5:15 PM on August 12, 1969, they were towing a disabled gun jeep with a wrecker when they were ambushed on Highway QL-1 near Tan Hiep in Phu Yen Province, RVN, at an area known as “Rocking Chair.” Two homemade claymore-type mines were fired at their wrecker from an overhanging boulder on the western edge of the road. The blast cast a lethal matrix of fragments which literally blew the two vehicles off the road, killing Green and Quinn. Moderate to intense enemy gunfire was received from undetermined enemy positions on the rocky hillside for approximately forty-five minutes after the attack. Apart from the loss of the two personnel, another five Americans were wounded. The wrecker and gun jeep were total losses along with associated radio equipment from the gun jeep.
