Remembering An American Hero

Dear FA Charles Albert Philhower, 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

Childhood memories of Cappy!!! (Charles Albert Philhower)

I grew up with Charles (Cappy to his friends) in Denville, N.J. Was a grand childhood companion. We spent many a good time camping and fishing together with his brother Tim, as well as other neighborhood friends. Spring and summer you could always find Cappy fishing the Rockaway River during trout season. Sorely missed...any memories of childhood always have him included...were memorable times...tree house in the backyard apple tree, hunting...just kids growing up...!!

I remember all his brothers & sisters and his parents always made you feel like you were a member of the family.

I was ' in _country' Dec'65 when I heard Cappy was killed......Da Nang, I Corps, S.VietNam with the Marine Corps (FLSG-A).

May God keep you close Cappy & I hope the trout are rising everyday....!!!
