NATIVE AMERICAN PRAYER

It is said a man hasn't died as long as he is remembered. This prayer is a way for family, friends and fellow veterans to remember our fallen brothers and sisters. 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 hush, I am the swift, uplifting rush of quiet birds in circled flight, I am the stars that shine at night. Do not stand at my grave and cry, I am not there, I did not die.

NATIVE AMERICAN PRAYER

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 hush,
I am the swift, uplifting rush of
quiet birds in circled flight,
I am the stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry,
I am not there, I did not die.

If I shoulddie...remembrances for LTCOL. Joseph BENOSKI, JR, USA...who died so that freedommay live!

If I should die, and leave you here awhile, be not like others, sore undone, who keep long vigils by the silent dust, and weep...for MY sake, turn again to life, and smile...Nerving thy heart, and trembling hand to do something to comfort other hearts than thine...Complete these dear, unfinished tasks of mine...and I, perchance,may therein comfort you.

FAIRWELL TO AN OFFICER AND FRIEND

I served under Col. Benoski with the XXIV Corps. G-3 Arc Light in Phu Bai RVN Jun 69 and he was a dynamic leader, while OIC, my trust in his leadership was so great that when he moved to the Corps Arty. Bn. I requested transfer to the unit in order to serve with him, I served as lasion with the S-3 for the Bn. until June 1970. It was a sad day for the entire unit the day he and Wo Quick were killed while in support of the Inf. He and Mr. Quick were calling in gun ships and Arty. from thier Helicopter and with no reguard for themselfs,when they were shot down. We "the unit" tried to getInf.support in for them but to no avail. Col. Benoski was not only the Commanding officer but a friend to all of the men in the unit. Signed SFC Kenneth L Sheffield U.S. Army Retired.
