To Put A Face With A Name

Dear Laurier, to honor your memory and the sacrifice you made for our country I want to make sure your photo will be displayed on your birthday each and every year when the Education Center is completed, so it is with great pride and humility that I post this remembrance and picture of you. You are not forgotten and remain in the hearts of many all these years later. You have been designated to be one of God's special angels, along with the love of my life, who also sacrificed his life during this war 45 years ago. God Bless You, Laurier, for being who you were and for all you did--we live in freedom to this day thanks to heroes like you.

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 and patriots 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

Many people in this county say that they are patriotic. You showed your patriotism with action. Many say that they love this country. You showed your love with service. Many say that they would die for this country. You did so. You made that sacrifice, and you paid that price that oftentimes is necessary to preserve the freedoms and values represented by this country. Through the Gridley High School posting project, my history class at Gridley High School is currently ensuring that not one soldier who paid that price is forgotten. Let this remembrance reinforce the fact that you will not be forgotten. This country is in your debt because of your sacrifice. For your service, and that sacrifice, I thank you.
