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.

Attack on Dong Ha Combat Base – April 28, 1967

Dong Ha Combat Base was a U.S. Marine Corps and U.S. Army base northwest of Quang Tri in central Vietnam. On April 28, 1967, Dong Ha was attacked by enemy forces firing 140mm rockets and 82mm mortars. The base sustained moderate damage and ten personnel killed. There were 90 wounded in the attack which started at 2:40 AM and lasted 40 minutes. The lost Americans included seven Marines and three U.S. Air Force personnel. The Marines were LCPL Paul J. Braun, CPL Ritson L. Clarke, SSGT Jerry Delph, LCPL William L. Harris, LCPL John H. Holland, CPL Albert J. Rose, and SGT George F. Smith; the airmen were A1C Wolfgang A. Haegele, SSGT Lindy E. Henry, and A3C Bob Jewitt. At first light on April 28th, Company A, 1/9 Marines began searching for the enemy launch site. Seventy-eight rocket launching positions aimed at the base were located and 54 intact rockets were captured. At another position, a launch site with 30 launching positions and 15 intact rockets was discovered.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear A3C Bob Jewitt, 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
