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 SGT Joseph R. Martinez

Operation Gadsden was conducted by the 25th Infantry Division in Tay Ninh Province, RVN, during February 2-12, 1967. The action was planned as a deception maneuver ahead of Operation Junction City in which the 25th Infantry Division sought to engage the North Vietnamese Army’s 271st Regiment in the western area of War Zone C. Following B-52 bombing strikes against suspected base areas of the 271st Regiment, eight U.S. infantry battalions moved into the area and seized two abandoned border villages, Lo Go and Xom Giua, which had served as supply depots from the Sihanouk Trail in Cambodia, a network of roads and trails that provided manpower and materiel to the Viet Cong. About three miles southeast of the Lo Go border post, the 2nd Battalion, 1st Infantry, 196th Infantry Brigade created a forward operating base. On February 4, 1967, the base was subjected to an enemy mortar attack. Four U.S. personnel were killed in the barrage. They included SP4 Salvatore Cammarata, PFC Robert F. Helveston, SGT Joseph R. Martinez, and PFC John Storelli. [Taken from coffeltdatabase.org, wikipedia.org, and “Army 1967 196th Light Infantry Brigade, 25 Nov 1966 - 8 Apr 1967” at ttu.edu]
