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.
Thank you for your service as an Airborne Qualified Indirect Fire Infantryman with the 12th Cavalry, 1st Cavalry. This was Mike's unit. Say hi to him. Independence Day is approaching, and it is important for us all to acknowledge the sacrifices of those like you who answered our nation's call. Please watch over America, it stills needs your courage and faithfulness. Rest in peace with the angels.
Remembering an American Hero
Dear PFC Clarence Ray Brame, sir
As a native North Carolinian, 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
An American patriot and a proud Tarheel
As a member of Mortar Platoon, Charlie Company, 1st Battalion, 12th Cav, 1st Cavalry Division, Clarence 'Gomer' Brame died defending Landing Zone Hereford near Vinh Thanh in Binh Dinh Province in Vietnam's Central Highlands.
May the American people never forget the sacrifice he made for freedom.
