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.

As long as you are remembered you will always be with us....

Details behind Award:
For heroic achievement in connection with operations against the enemy in the Republic of Vietnam while serving as a Corpsman with Company A, 1st Battalion, Third Marlines, Third Marine Division.

On 5 Match, 1968, during Operation Saline II, Company A was engaging a search and clear mission near the village of Dai Do in Quang Tri Province when one of the platoon was pinned down by heavy enemy small arms and automatic weapons fire, wounding six Marines.
Ignorlng the heavy volume of hostile fire, Petty Officer Bandelier ran across the fire-swept
terrain to reach the injured men and pull them behind the cover of grave mounds. He then skillfully administered first aid and supervised their evacuation from the hazardous area, leaving only after ensuring that the causalities were moved to safety.
"When elements of his company were again pinned down in open terrain on the afternoon of
7 March by intense North Vietnamese fire near the village of Phu Tai, he crawled under the heavy
fire to administer first aid to two wounded men. During the final assault against enemy positions
in the village. Petty Officer Bandelier again moved to aid Marine seriously wounded and lying in an
exposed position in a rice paddy,
"Running through the hostile fire, he reached the man only to discover he bad been mortally wounded. When another Marine nearby was wounded, he crawled to the injured man, treated his
wounds and then supervised his evacuation to the company perimeter.
Throughout the night, he continued to comfort the casualties and provide medical treatment.
Petty Officer Bandelier's courage, outstanding professional skill and selfless devotion to duty at great personal risk were in keeping with the highest traditions of the Marine Corps and of the United States Naval Service.
For The President,
T .H. Moorer
Admiral, United State.Navy
