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.

As long as you are remembered you will never truly die.

Ground Casualty

SP5 Alexander A. Ames was a food service specialist serving with Headquarters & Headquarters Company, 4th Battalion, 3rd Infantry, 11th Infantry Brigade, Americal Division at LZ Thunder (AKA LZ Debbie), 5 miles southeast of Duc Pho Airfield in Quang Ngai Province, RVN. At 2255 hours on October 31, 1968, there was a request for a “dustoff” (medical evacuation by helicopter) for a U.S. soldier with a gunshot wound in his neck. It was reported five minutes later the wounded soldier had died. Military Police were alerted, and an investigation was initiated. Some of the findings determined that the incident was not the result of hostile (enemy) action and that the wound point of entry was under the left arm with the exit wound on the right side of the neck. The weapon involved was an M16 rifle. The Army later ruled the shooting a suicide. The deceased, SP5 Ames, was 22 years-old. [Taken from coffeltdatabase.org and 1-20infantry.org]
