    In honor of Thomas M. Peavy who fought in the Vietnam War. He was deployed at the age of 20 in October of 1969. He left behind his parents Mr. and Mrs. E. J. Peavy, his brother Ronald Peavy, and his three sisters Cheryl, Dovie Ann, and Gaynell. Thomas Peavy lived in San Diego, California and graduated from Lincoln High School in 1967. He was part of the Letterman’s Club and was a varsity track star. He enjoyed going to parties, record shops and listening to jazz. In the yearbook, above his senior year picture states that after graduation he hoped to join the Air Force and serve as a mechanic, which was similar to his brother Ronald Peavy who was already in the Air Force before he left for Vietnam. Thomas Peavy served as an SP-4 for the 615th MP Co., 95th MP BN, 89th MP Group, 18th MP BDE and USARV, unfortunately Peavy died five months into his deployment. Even so, he will always be remembered as not only as a soldier but as a brother to those who he fought side by side with in the war and to his siblings back at home.

    Dear SP4 Thomas Michael Peavy, sir



    As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for your sacrifice made on behalf of our wonderful country. The youth of today could gain much by learning of heroes such as yourself, men and women whose courage and heart can never be questioned.



    May God allow you to read this, and may He allow me to someday shake your hand when I get to Heaven to personally thank you. May he also allow my father to find you and shake your hand now to say 'thank you'; for America, for those who love you, and for the Sgt's son.



    With respect, and the best salute a civilian can muster for you, Sir



    Curt Carter (son of Sgt. Ardon William Carter, 101st Airborne, February 4, 1966, South Vietnam)

  • Never Forgotten

    FOREVER REMEMBERED

    "If you are able, save for them a place inside of you....and save one backward glance when you are leaving for the places they can no longer go.....Be not ashamed to say you loved them....
    Take what they have left and what they have taught you with their dying and keep it with your own....And in that time when men decide and feel safe to call the war insane, take one moment to embrace those gentle hero’s you left behind...."

    Quote from a letter home by Maj. Michael Davis O'Donnell
    KIA 24 March 1970. Distinguished Flying Cross: Shot down and Killed while attempting to rescue 8 fellow soldiers surrounded by attacking enemy forces.

    We Nam Brothers pause to give a backward glance, and post this remembrance to you, one of the gentle heros lost to the War in Vietnam:

    Slip off that pack. Set it down by the crooked trail. Drop your steel pot alongside. Shed those magazine-ladened bandoliers away from your sweat-soaked shirt. Lay that silent weapon down and step out of the heat. Feel the soothing cool breeze right down to your soul ... and rest forever in the shade of our love, brother.

    From your Nam-Band-Of-Brothers
