LEFT FOR TOMMY JOE BECKER

Remembering an American Hero

Dear PFC Tommy Joe Becker, 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

Crash Information on U.S. Army helicopter UH-1H tail number 69-15368

Aircraft was flying around a mountain top in a left bank when it entered low level clouds covering the mountain top in mountainous terrain. It then returned to an almost straight flight path with a slight rate of descent, before impacting into the side of a ridge running from the mountain top. The aircraft crashed into trees in what appeared to be a level attitude with a slight rate of descent. The aircraft burned upon impact. The bodies of two ROK soldiers were recovered near the wreckage and the bodies of the four crewmembers CW2 Gregory W. Hermann (KIA), CW2 Ronald H. Wiggins (KIA), SP4 David D. Stover (KIA), and PFC Tommy J. Becker (KIA) were recovered from the burned wreckage. [Taken from vhpa.org]

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
