My heart is broken!

I think of you every day but several times over the years I have felt your presence.
Still looking for anyone who served with you...
I visit the wall in Perryville, Missouri every year & the moving wall when it's close to home but it's not the same.
Always remember...Never forget & Thank a Vet.

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.

As long as you are remembered you will always be with us....

Attack on LZ Leslie – January 3, 1968

Landing Zone Leslie (also known as Firebase Leslie or Hill 138) was a U.S. Army and Army of the Republic of Vietnam (ARVN) base located in the Que Son Valley southwest of Hoi An in Quang Nam Province in central Vietnam. The base was located along Route 534, approximately twenty miles northwest of Tam Ky. On the early morning of January 3, 1968, the North Vietnamese Army’s 3rd Regiment, 2nd Division attacked four U.S. firebases in the Que Son Valley, launching ground attacks against Leslie and Firebase Ross. At Leslie the NVA penetrated the base, attacking bunkers with flamethrowers and satchel charges before being pushed out in the afternoon. Losses were 15 U.S. killed. The lost Americans included (from 2nd Battalion, 12th Cavalry) SGT Charles T. Cooke, CPL Arnold L. Coonrod, PFC Dennis D. Dautremont, SSG Billy J. Ellis (MIA), SGT Ronald D. Goulet, SSG Juan A. Guzman, PFC Robert R. Lindbergh, SSG Rodney A. Price, CPL Darwin E. Ray, SGT Jesse E. Rodriguez, SGT Jerry L. Smith, and CPL Melford W. West; (from B Battery 1/21 Artillery) MSG Edward K. Robison and SGT Morgan E. Stewart; (from 11th Pathfinder Company) SGT John M. Brimm; and (from G Battery, 29th Artillery) CPL Clarence Robinson. SP4 Ellis was on radio watch when the landing zone came under heavy mortar and small arms attack. Other members of Ellis' unit stated that he had been hit in the initial barrage as they went to seek cover. While in a protected position, these individuals saw an ammunition bunker explode. After the engagement, no trace of Ellis could be found. From witness statements, it was assumed that Ellis had probably crawled into the ammunition bunker that exploded. Sixty-three NVA were reportedly killed. [Taken from coffeltdatabase.org, pownetwork.org, and wikipedia.org]
