Say Not, They Die, Those Splendid Souls
Say not, they die, those splendid souls,
Whose life is winged with purpose fine;
Who leave us, pointed to the goals;
Who learn to conquer and resign.
Such cannot die; they vanquish time,
And fill the world with glowing light,
Making the human life sublime
With memories of their secret might.
They cannot die whose lives are part
Of the great life that is to be;
Whose hearts beat with the world’s great heart,
And throb with its high intensity.
Those souls are great, who, dying, gave
A gift of greater life to man;
Death stands abashed before the brave;
They own a life death cannot ban.
Never have I been so touched by the death of a serviceman in my 45 years here on this earth. It would have been an honor to know this fine young man. May his memory comfort everyone who had the honor to know and love him. I will not forget him.

These brave PJs are the best of the best. This hits close to home...The bird was from the 66th...my son's squadron.
I will never forget them either...
