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.

River Boat Accident

Edwin died as a result of an accident. He was riding on a river patrol boat after his platoon was picked up from pulling a night ambush along the river bank. Another patrol boat came too close to the boat Edwin was on and created a wave that swept over the deck. Edwin and another Wolfhound were swept off the boat with the wave. Edwin was loaded down with a lot of heavy ammunition and wasn’t able to surface. The boat did turn around and the other Wolfhound was rescued.

You were one of the brave that answered the call. You honored us by your service and sacrifice. We now honor you each time we stand and sing the words “THE LAND OF THE FREE AND THE HOME OF THE BRAVE”. Rest in Peace and Honor Ed.

My Oldest Friend

Eddie was my oldest friend in the world. When his house burned down as a child, I invited his entire family to come and live with my family. When I had returned from R&R in Hawaii, I was shocked to see Eddie at the USO in Cam Ranh Bay, the day before he deployed to his unit. It was the last time I would ever see my friend. He was KIA just a few weeks later. I was devastated.
