Remembering an old classmate

Remembering you from our grammar school days at St. Helena of the Cross School. You lived in Chicago at 101st and Union and had a beautiful German Shepard (I loved dogs ). Lost track of you after grammar school and we moved from 102nd and Emerald . Heard of your death at our 50th Class Reunion. Thank you for your service to our country. So many didn't return from Vietnam. God rest your soul . My family visited the Moving Vietnam Memorial Wall in 2015 and found your name on the wall. It was a very emotional day to see your name with all the others and to be able to take an impression . I encourage everyone to visit The Wall when it comes to your city.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear PFC James Harry Sachaschik, 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

My Hero

I wasn’t here when you fought
I couldn’t mourn for your death
But now that I know who you are
And what you did for me
I want to thank you for being strong and brave
And risking your life for me.

You will always be in my heart
As a hero of our great country.
