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

Thank You

A country in times of war places the greatest responsibility imaginable on the shoulders of her military. I thank you for hearing the call of duty and giving up your life for America. My name is T.J. Kaupp and I am with the Gridley High School Posting Project. I will never forget this conflict and the brave men fighting it. Again thank you.

Dear Ronnie,

I remember arriving at Grandma's house and you were always there already, or running in the door shortly after. We were kids. We were cousins. I have the fondest memories of visiting our grandmother. She seemed to be always in the kitchen cooking, or putting something on the table for everyone to eat. The house was always full of people, in and out all the time.
Many years have now gone by, but I have never stopped missing you. Your smile, your wonderful personality, you were always there to help someone.
I know you served well. I know you were proud to be a Marine. I can only dream of the contributions you would have made if your name were not on this wall.
Your Cousin
