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

I met Mario in Del Mar Tech in Corpus. We were in the same welding class. He got drafted a month before me.I live in McAllen. I ran into him in Nam & he told me that he wasn't going to make it.At my tours end I happened to run into a group of soldiers from Robstown. I was told the bad news.I will never forget you

You will always be remembered!

Dear Mario,
You will always be remembered for everything you did for this country. You had to give up so much just to save this country, and its people. You will always be remembered as long as the other soldiers that fought. Thank you for everything you did, and may God bless you!
Sincerely Yours:
Katie Enright
