Thank You

Dear Sgt James Melvin, Thank you for your service as an Infantryman. Saying thank you isn't enough, but it is from the heart. Yesterday was POW/MIA Recognition Day, and today is the first day of autumn. Time passes quickly. Please watch over America, it stills needs your strength, courage and faithfulness, especially now. Rest in peace with the angels.

I WAS THERE

It has been 44 years ago when you lost your life on
that horrible day of December 13, 1969. I was there
when you charged up to that NVA bunker and gave
your all so that we would be saved. You will always
be my hero. I will never forget you James!

Remembering An American Hero

Dear SGT James Edwin Melvin Jr, 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
