NATIVE AMERICAN PRAYER

It is said a man hasn't died as long as he is remembered. This prayer is a way for families, 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

Dear Sgt. Ollie:

"Greater love has no man than this,
that a man lay down his life for his friends."
(The Holy Scriptures: John 15:13)

I just wanted to tell you that you did not die in vain in that hot jungle so long ago. I remember you like it was yesterday. Your sandy blond hair. The smile on your face. The orange towel around your neck. Your last words to me, "Lets trade places, let your track go ahead of me...I'll switch with you guys. Hurry up..." Then that dam RPG came screaming in and silenced you. I was shocked. I had to put you in a poncho and carry you to the helicopter. I remember feeling outside myself and numb inside. Than we caught enemey sniper fire and I jumped to the floor where your dead body covered my live body until the shooting stopped. Even in death you were and are my HERO! After the war I married, had seven children, 2 boys and 5 girls, went to school, and became a Christian. You died that I might live...just live Jesus taught..Thanks my brother. I know that you are in God's sweet arms and I have waited 31 years to write to you what I have been feeling in my heart! Your act of love in the field of honor was my chance to live some dreams for the both of us...I will never forget you and I know that one day I will see you again. You are and ever shall be my comrade and my special friend.
With much love, Your brother Angel...
