Remembering An American Hero

Dear PFC Russell M Heath, 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

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

Loved dancing, singing and playing music

Russell M. Heath
Earp Street, South Philadelphia

Heath, the youngest of eight children, was nicknamed “Baby” by his mother. He loved dancing, singing and playing musical instruments, and often wrote his own songs. Heath attended Benjamin Franklin High School and worked as a dishwasher before enlisting in the Army in August 1964. He planned to make a career of the service. The 20-year-old private first class, a rifleman assigned to Company A of the 1st Battalion, 503rd Infantry, 101st Airborne Division, died in Vietnam on Oct. 5, 1965. He was survived by his mother, two brothers and five sisters.
