My friend Billy

William "Billy" Cutshaw was my best friend at St. James High School in Greene County Tennessee. Billy was an excellent baseball player and loved the New York Yankees. He was slow to anger and would stay calm in most situations. He joined the army right after we graduated. After his basic and artillery training he volunteered for Vietnam. Of course the army sent him to Germany. He kept volunteering for Vietnam and he was sent there in December 1965. He was killed on January 17, 1966 during an attack on his artillery base. He was 19 years old. Billy, I still miss you and can imagine the man you would have become.

My Friend

William "Billy" Cutshaw was my best friend at St. James High School in Greene County Tennessee. We graduated together in 1964. Billy joined the army right after graduation. He volunteered for Vietnam as soon as he was eligible. The army sent him to Germany instead. After arriving in Germany, he set about getting his orders changed to go Vietnam. The army sent him to Vietnam in Dec. 1965. He was killed on January 17, 1966 during an attack on his artillery base. He was 19 years old. Billy was an excellent baseball player and loved the New York Yankees. I still miss him.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear PFC William Cutshaw, 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, and for those who love you.

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

Curt Carter

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 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
