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

If I should die....remembrances for MSGT. Chester M. Ovnand, USA...among the first to die in Vietnam as a result of enemy action!

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.

For the first enlisted man to die by enemy action in Vietnam...MSGT. Chester Ovnand, USA, who died along with Major Buis!

The poor brave soldier ne'er despise, nor count him as a stranger!...REMEMBER!...he's his country's stay, in day and hour of danger!
