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 die...

Ground Casualty

Camp Viking was part of the Red Beach Base Area, a complex of U.S. Marines, Navy and Army, and Army of the Republic of Vietnam (ARVN) logistics and support bases northwest of Da Nang in Quang Nam Province, RVN. On January 23, 1970, CWO James H. Alexander, a helicopter pilot based at Viking, had instructed a private E-1 to get a military haircut and report to him at 1330 hours. The E-1, PVT Malcom J. Grim, reported as ordered, but did not have his hair cut. Alexander, along with Grim's squad leader, proceeded to escort the private to the barber shop. Somewhere along the way, Grim pulled a fragmentation grenade from his pocket and yelled, "I have been to the barber, and I do not want to get another hair cut!" Grim pulled the pin on the grenade and let the spoon fly. Eyewitnesses stated that Grim made a motion to throw the grenade into a group of soldiers playing volleyball. Alexander struggled Grim, grasping the hand that held the grenade, while he tried to remove him to an area where several Conex containers would shield the blast. An explosion occurred and Grim was killed. Alexander was critically injured and taken to military hospital. He succumbed to his injuries on February 7, 1970.
