January 7, 1964

I remember the day like yesterday, Maj. Adams. Cleve (Capt. Cleveland Gordon, B-26 Flight Section Leader) my pilot, came in to alert me that we would be test flying one of our B-26s that was in Air Vietnam for repairs, later that day. Some time later, Cleve returned to inform me that you wanted to personally insure that the problems with the aircraft had been corrected and that the two of you would be conducting the test flight.

I was busy with my additional duties as Squadron Administrative Officer that afternoon when we received word that a B-26 had crashed. Your and Cleve's aircraft was the only 26 airborne at the time. We all held our breath, praying the crash was minor. It wasn't til evening that we learned that the tail of the aircraft had separated and that you and Cleve had both perished.

You and Cleve have been with me everyday since, but I'm not sure my thoughts are being received by you. I suppose I'll have to wait until we meet again to let you know that I have not wasted the 50+ years you have given me.

God bless you and your family!

Remembering An American Hero

Dear Major Hughie Darell Adams, 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

On Silver Wings

On Silver Wings
They Flew The Skies
These Brave Young Men
Who Fought And Died
When Duty Called
They Went So Brave
Now Families Mourn
Beside Their Grave
Who Can Forget
What Courage They Had
Some Have,Some Did
And That's So Sad

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
