If I should die...remermbrances for CAPT. Joseph Orville BROWN, USAF...who died for our country!!!!!

If I should die, and leave you here awhile, be not like others, sore undone, who keep long vigils by the silent dust, and weep...for MY sake, turn again to life, and smile...Nerving thy heart, and trembling hand to do somethin g to comfort other hearts than thine...C omplete these dear, unfinished tasks of mine...and I, perchance, may therein comfort you.

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.

Mary Frye – 1932

In Honored Remembrance

From a contemporary press report: April 23, 1999

Thirty-three years to the day his aircraft was shot down over Laos, Air Force Captain Joseph O. Brown received a full-honors funeral at the Fort Myer Post Chapel that included a fly-over by four Air Force F-15 fighters.

According to Air Force reports, Brown, a pilot in the 505th TAC Control Group, was on a mission over Laos on April 19, 1966, when his aircraft was struck by hostile fire.

Brown then radioed that part of the right horizontal stabilizer had been blown off, and that he was going to a higher altitude. The aircraft was observed to roll twice while in a steep dive and crash.

No parachute was seen, but white smoke was seen to rise from the crash site.
Joint teams of U.S. and Laos specialists visited the area of the crash on two occasions in 1994 and 1995. Led by the Joint Task Force-Full Accounting, the teams recovered pilot-related items, an aircraft data plate from Brown's
aircraft, as well as human remains.

Anthropological analysis of the remains and other evidence by the U.S. Army Central Identification Laboratory, Hawaii, established the identification of Brown and Air Force Colonel Gregory I. Barras.

With the identification of these two Air Force officers, the remains of 507 Americans have now been accounted for since 1973, and 2,076 are still unaccounted for from the war in Southeast Asia.
