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.

Ground Casualty

Landing Zone (LZ) Ann was an Americal Division fire support base located seven kilometers (4.2 miles) northeast of Binh Son in Quang Tin Province, RVN. On February 15, 1968, some members of E Company, 1st Battalion, 52nd Infantry, 198th Infantry Brigade were tasked with disposing degraded fuel on the base. The men attempted to get rid of the contaminated gas by burning it. In the process, a can exploded, inflicting burns on three soldiers, two seriously. One man, SP4 Wayne E. Lewis Jr., sustained 2nd and 3rd degree burns over 90% percent of his body. He was medically evacuated to the U.S. Army Burn Center at 106th General Hospital at Kishine Barracks in Yokohama, Japan. While undergoing treatment three days after being injured, Lewis expired after uncontrolled blood loss led to hemorrhagic shock. [Taken from coffeltdatabase.org]
