"I've been loving you too long to stop now!"

Years had the passed and the pain of your death had eased until last year. I do not know why the pain and memories came back, but I have to let the pain leave again on its own. I wish I had eloped with you that night when you asked me to go away with you........Even now I don't know why I refused and wish you had told me what you were going through at the time. I did not know you were being pressured into something you did not what to do. Then I should have answered your letter in time; the pain is so great because I was playing games again! But, I thought you would come back home and we would have a chance to make things right. I will regret my decision the rest of my life.

Uncle

Though we never met.... I tell you that I miss you. I was cheated of having the wonderful memories that I share with your other sibblings. My mother shows me pictures of you and I try to imagine.... what it would be like to say these words to you.... I love you Uncle Charlie !!

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
