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.

Final Mission of PFC Richard J. Anasiewicz

PFC Richard J. Anasiewicz was a rifleman serving with First Platoon, Company M, Third Battalion, Fifth Marines. On July 18, 1966, during a search and destroy operation in the Quang Tri Province, RVN, PFC Anasiewicz’s platoon came under intense semi-automatic and machine gun fire. He immediately began firing from the hip at an enemy machine gun position, effectively reducing its fire. Then he raced to the aid of two wounded Marines, directing one out of the line of fire, and, disregarding his own personal safety, carried the other Marine to a safe location. Still under intense fire, he went to the aid of another wounded Marine and was moving back with him to his position when he was mortally wounded by a sniper. PFC Anasiewicz’s unfaltering courage in the face of extreme danger and his devotion to duty upheld the highest traditions of the Marine Corps and the United States Naval Service. He gallantly gave his life for his country. [Taken from PFC Anasiewicz’s Silver Star citation]
