    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 heroes 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 heroes 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

    I remember Jim best because we use to all joke with him about his sunken chest. He was a great human being and a friend. He really loved his family and that was all he ever talked about. I want them to know how much we all appreciated and loved him too!

    In honor of your ultimate sacrifice to guarantee the freedom we enjoy and many times take for granted, The 8th grade class of Vonore Elementary School made it our goal to travel to the Vietnam Memorial Wall in Washintion, D.C. and "Bring Back The Names" of our Heros from Monroe County Tennessee. ON May the 9th 2004 we reached our goal as we arrived back in Vonore aboard the bus that had taken twenty nine of our fellow students, two teacher and nine parents to Washington, D.C. to see you and your fellow fallen solders names not only return home but return home together. I would also like to say that I appreciate what he had did for our country.I also think all the other people like him. I would have loved to meet him thank you alot.

    We would also like to say it was a great experience for me and everyone else that had gone and it was a once and a lifetime chance for me. The name of my veteran was James Arthur Bordon and I got to scratch his name off of the wall and it may get published so I am greatful for that. It was a great experience for me and I will always remember it.

Brought to you by the organization that built The Wall, the Vietnam Veterans Virtual Memorial Wall is dedicated to honoring, remembering and sharing the legacies of all those who died in the Vietnam War. Here you can go beyond the names on The Wall to see the faces, share the stories and read the remembrances posted by friends, neighbors, classmates and family members.

All of these photos will be showcased in The Education Center at The Wall on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. To learn more about the effort to collect these photos and ensure their faces will never be forgotten, visit www.buildthecenter.org.
