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.

Final Mission of TSGT Glendell E. Yates

On November 20, 1966, a U.S. Army CV-2B (#62-4167) from the 135th Aviation Company hit a mountainside in heavy fog approximately 12 miles southwest of Tuy Hoa, RVN. There were no survivors. The four-member crew comprised aircraft commander CPT John W. Clayton, co-pilot CAPT Anthony F. Korpics (USAF), crew chief SSGT Arnold C. Pearson, and flight mechanic TSGT Glendell E. Yates (USAF). Korpics and Yates were from the 6252nd Operations Squadron, 7th Air Force, and on temporary duty to the 135th Aviation Company. Clayton and Pearson were both from the 135th.
