Courageous Patriot

Courage is almost a contradiction in terms. It means a strong desire to live taking the form of readiness to die.

~G.K. Chesterton



Thank you for giving your all for our freedom. That sacrifice is something that no Rememberance can capture in any amount of words

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

Basic Training

John was in my basic training company D-5-1 at Fort Polk, Louisiana in the fall of 1967. He was a quiet guy. I have a picture of John, two other guys and myself the day before we started basic training. That picture has hung in my den for over 25 years. May his sacrifice never be forgotten.
