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

Never Forgotten

FOREVER REMEMBERED

"If you are able, save for them a place inside of you....and save one backward glance when you are leaving for the places they can no longer go.....Be not ashamed to say you loved them....
Take what they have left and what they have taught you with their dying and keep it with your own....And in that time when men decide and feel safe to call the war insane, take one moment to embrace those gentle heroes you left behind...."

Quote from a letter home by Maj. Michael Davis O'Donnell
KIA 24 March 1970. Distinguished Flying Cross: Shot down and Killed while attempting to rescue 8 fellow soldiers surrounded by attacking enemy forces.

We Nam Brothers pause to give a backward glance, and post this remembrance to you, one of the gentle heroes lost to the War in Vietnam:

Slip off that pack. Set it down by the crooked trail. Drop your steel pot alongside. Shed those magazine-ladened bandoliers away from your sweat-soaked shirt. Lay that silent weapon down and step out of the heat. Feel the soothing cool breeze right down to your soul ... and rest forever in the shade of our love, brother.

From your Nam-Band-Of-Brothers

A night none of us will forget!

What's this SP4 stuff? I saw you get your stripes, looks like the Army screwed up again. Sgt. Bryant, you were a great soldier, a great leader, a good man and a good friend. I wish you would have taken me up on my offer to go in your place that night. Coming back from the hospital that day (having your ears drums lanced to relieve the pressure from the infection in your ears, another thing we shared. We both had screwed up ears from the concussions from firing the mortars.) I could tell you were feeling terrible and were in no condition to go on ambush that night. So I asked and pleaded with you to let me go in your place, and take the night off. Why you didn't take me up on it only God knows. You said, "no I'll go, no one wants to go out there on this night", and you and your squad saddled up and left the firebase that night, and we wished you well. I knew you would do your duty no matter what. I never got to say bye to you, I never got to say how much I appreciated you and the job you did, we never got to say bye to the ones that left the way you did. Ski as you know was wounded and we never saw him again. you. Well I'll be seeing you up there, because I know you're there, we'll have a great time then! Maybe God will put us on a mission together.
