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 SP4 Joel K. Kamalolo

SP4 Joel K. Kamalolo was a cannon crewmember serving with A Battery, 5th Battalion, 42nd Artillery, 23rd Artillery Group. On August 25, 1971, SP4 Kamalolo was driving a military jeep with a trailer attached, conducting a resupply mission from a forward Fire Support base camp in Long Khanh Province, RVN. Traveling with him were two additional service members returning to their home base. They had only gone a few thousand meters from the Fire Support base when they were ambushed on Highway QL-20. They were out of sight from the fire support base but within ear shot. The three were attacked by several Viet Cong who approached from the left side, coming out of the high grass. One of the VC fired an RPG (rocket-propelled grenade) at them which struck on the driver side below the driver seat. Kamalolo was killed instantly. The other two remaining individuals were able to get out and take cover a few meters away and wait for help from the Fire Support Base. A reaction force arrived on the scene and recovered Kamalolo’s remains. They were taken to the U.S. Army mortuary in Long Binh.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear SP4 Joel Kahalealoha Kamalolo, 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
