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.

Jack was a great guy .

I was in the same company 117th AHC. Jack was a friend to a lot of us in the flight platoons. It was really a sad day when the ship was shot down. Four good men were lost that day during TET 68. I think of that day often, what a loss.

For my best friend & brother, Jack

I want to honor my brother Jack B Sutphen. Jack was our oldest brother of 6. We were very poor because our father abandoned us when we were very young. Our mother did her best. Jack told me that if you join any service to join the Air Force because it was a little safer for them in Vietnam. On his last tour of duty, he told our Mom that our country needed him over there. Two weeks later on January 25, 1968 he was a gunner on a helicopter which was shot down by the North Vietnamese. There were no survivors. He was with the 101st Screaming Eagles, then he switched to the 1st Aviation Brigade as a gunner. I'll never forget my mother's screams when the Army came to our door and informed us that Jack had died. After we buried Jack, I went to the Air Force recruiter to enlist and volunteer to go go Vietnam. I was only 18 and didn't finish my senior year. I just wanted to be where my brother had been. I was in Vietnam June, 1969 to June, 1970 stationed at Pleiku. Jack was my mentor, brother, my best friend. I love him and miss him very much. Clark

Remembering An American Hero

Dear SGT Jack B Sutphen, 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, Sir

Curt Carter
