Please also remember Capt. Vince Scungio who was with Col. Brinckmann when he was shot down over North Vietnam. He was his Electronic Weapons Officer and was never returned for a proper burial. May you too continue to rest in peace. A grateful nation honors you as well this Memorial Day 2018.

An American Hero

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.

Mary Frye – 1932

This is dedicated to you Col. Robert Brinckmann on this Memorial Day 2017. Those of us who knew you, those of us who are left of our different families wish to thank you once again for your service. Though you were listed as MIA on November 4, 1966, it was an honor to be at your final resting place, Arlington National Cemetery, when they buried you with full military honors on April 17, 1990.
