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.

Final Mission of SP4 Larry M. Alcos

On February 16, 1969, a U.S. Army helicopter UH-1D (tail number 66-16091) from the 57th Assault Helicopter Company was attempting to insert a Long-Range Reconnaissance Patrol (LRRP) team in a landing zone one mile northeast of Polei Kleng in Kontum Province, RVN, when the aircraft received an unknown number and type of hits from enemy ground fire. The pilot, WO1 Normand P. Perron, radioed on climb out that the controls were erratic. The aircraft then began a slow spiral descent and crashed, bursting into flames upon impact. All four of the crewmembers were killed as were the four LRRP team members aboard. The lost crewmen included WO1 Perron, aircraft commander WO1 Arthur L. Papale, crew chief SP4 Rick A. Oliver, and gunner SP4 Larry M. Alcos. The four lost Rangers were SGT Ralph G. Dunn, SP4 Gerald Q. Hancock, PFC Hugh R. McKinney, and SP4 Jack L. Rightmyer. Hancock was posthumously promoted to Sergeant and McKinney to Corporal. [Taken from coffeltdatabase.org and vhpa.org]
