Final Mission of WO1 Charles A. Alvarez

On February 16, 1968, WO1 Charles A. Alvarez was flying in a UH-1B (tail number 64-14056) from A Battery, 2-20th Aerial Rocket Artillery, First Cavalry Division. While in flight at 1500 feet the aircraft came under fire, taking six 12.7 mm hits, including a round which came through the left windshield and struck WO1 Alvarez. Even though the main rotor system was damaged in the attack, the helicopter was able to continue flight. WO1 Alvarez, however, suffered fatal injuries from his wound. [Taken from vhpa.org]

NATIVE AMERICAN PRAYER

It is said a man hasn't died as long as he is remembered. This prayer is a way for families, friends and fellow veterans to remember our fallen brothers and sisters. 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 hush, I am the swift, uplifting rush of quiet birds in circled flight, I am the stars that shine at night. Do not stand at my grave and cry, I am not there, I did not die
