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.

As long as you are remembered you will never truly die.

Final Mission of PFC George W. Alexander Jr.

On September 25, 1966, during Operation Sunset Beach, Company A, 1st Battalion (Mechanized), 5th Infantry, departed Cu Chi Base Camp at 0742 hours to conduct search and destroy operations in Binh Duong Province, RVN. At 0842 hours, one M113A armored personnel carrier hit an anti-tank mine. The explosion ignited the fuel tank, causing a fire and secondary explosions, resulting in eight Bobcats burned to death. Three others were seriously injured, and the vehicle was completely destroyed. At 0955 hours, Graves Registration was requested to dispatch a team to remove the remains of those deceased Bobcats that were still inside the track. The lost troopers included PFC Gary A. Barnard, PFC Gary R. Dopp, SGT Roy D. Hutting, SSGT Ernest R. Martie, SP4 James E. Miller, SP4 Terry L. Pundsack, SP4 Robert M. Waters, and SGT Walter Williams. A ninth Bobcat, PFC George W. Alexander Jr., one of the three injured in this incident, succumbed to his injuries after being evacuated to the United States for treatment. He died on October 4, 1966, in Brooke General Hospital at Fort Sam Houston, TX. [Taken from coffeltdatabase.org and bobcat.ws]
