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.

As long as you are remembered you will always be with us....

Misadventure (Friendly Fire)

Firebase Birmingham was a U.S. Army and Army of the Republic of Vietnam (ARVN) base approximately seven miles southwest of Hue in Thua Thien Province, RVN. The base was originally established on Highway 547 in March and April of 1968 by the 2nd Brigade, 1st Airborne Division, to support Operation Jeb Stuart. Just before noon on March 16, 1968, the 1/327th Command Post of the 101st Airborne Division reported receiving incoming rounds/missiles/objects of unknown size which caused three large explosions. The blasts created six-foot deep craters that were thirty feet in diameter. One of the rounds hit the Fire Direction Center of Alpha Battery, 2/320th Artillery. Eight Americans were killed in the incident and another thirty-two were wounded, twenty of which required evacuation. The lost U.S. personnel included CPL Elbert A. Ballance, SSG Robert L. Bodine, 1LT Dennis R. Carr, PFC Bruce W. Loiselle, CPL Theodore V. McInnis, SGT Young D. Ogletree, CPL Thomas W. Scott, and SP4 Henry J. Servent Jr. An investigation into the incident determined that a U.S. Marine Corps A-4 Skyhawk attack aircraft on a support mission dropped three Mk 82 general purpose 500lb. bombs on the base.

Never Forgotten

So sad that the world lost Bob. I remember fun times in Edison Park at Sawyer's Soda Shop where we all hung out and he was so much fun.
Very sad also that his daughter never knew her Dad but I know her Mom had great memories to share with her.
You are never forgotten, Bobby.
