TEAMMATE FOR LIFE

"BOBBY" and I played side by side for many years in the neighborhood as well as high school and club soccer teams. The smile and determination was always there no matter the situation. A trusted friend!
My parents notified me of his passing while I was in Air Force pilot training. Six months later I was flying in South Vietnam. Hopefully to see his mission done...teammates once again.
I think about him every year at this time and hope his family know he impacted many.
I honor his sacrifice and think of him by my side on those PA soccer fields!

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.

Bob’s Squad Leader

I was Bob’s Squad Leader and the other 3 guys who died for 3 months. My tour was finished and I was flying home on the day of the horrific incident. I was spared; but I have guilt that perhaps with my experience of 10 months in the field I might have prevented this tragedy. Bob, Every March 20 , Joe and I remember you and cry.
