Sing me a song of a lad that is gone,
Say, could that lad be I?
Merry of soul he sailed on a day
Over the sea to Skye.

Mull was astern, Rum on the port,
Eigg on the starboard bow;
Glory of youth glowed in his soul:
Where is that glory now?

Sing me a song of a lad that is gone,
Say, could that lad be I?
Merry of soul he sailed on a day
Over the sea to Skye.

Give me again all that was there,
Give me the sun that shone!
Give me the eyes, give me the soul,
Give me the lad that's gone!

Sing me a song of a lad that is gone,
Say, could that lad be I?
Merry of soul he sailed on a day
Over the sea to Skye.

Billow and breeze, islands and seas,
Mountains of rain and sun,
All that was good, all that was fair,
All that was me is gone.

Robert Louis Stevenson

A Note from The Virtual Wall

On 29 Aug 1970 a UH-1H Huey (tail number 67-17699) of C Troop, 2nd Squadron, 17th Cavalry, was involved in a Ranger team insertion. As the aircraft settled into the landing zone it was hit repeatedly in the forward section by 12.7mm antiaircraft machinegun and RPG fire. With both pilots dead or dying, the aircraft crashed. Of the eight men aboard, four were injured but recovered by another aircraft and four were dead:

WO Minear was survived by his wife, Joann Minear, a son, and his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Max W. Minear, all at Sandy Court, Merritt Island, Florida. He is buried in Palm Cemetery Winter Park, Orange County, Florida.
