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

America will never forget you!

Dear Jerry,

I attend Gridley High School in Gridley, IL. For the Gridley High School Posting Project we are supposed to post remembrances for the soldiers who died serving our country during the Vietnam War.

Your life was given serving this country. Your name is engraved on a wall that will stand for years to come. You can be sure that America will not soon forget your efforts during the Vietnam War. Thank you for everything you have done to serve this country.

Thank You and God Bless!

Marissa

Thank you

Hi, I’m from Gridley High School and I’m doing a posting project. I’m not only sending this remembrance for the project but I am sending this because I want to thank you. Myself as well as many of my fellow classmates respect you and the several others who fought and died for our country. You will never be forgotten.
