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

Not Forgotten

I have not forgotten you. I chair the Adoption Committee for The National League of Families of Prisoners of War and Missing in Action in Southeast Asia. We will always remember the 1,889 Americans still unaccounted for in Southeast Asia and the thousands of others that lost their lives. We will not stop our efforts until all of you are home where you belong.

We need to reach the next generation so that they will carry on when our generation is no longer able. To do so, we are attempting to locate photographs of all the missing. If you are reading this remembrance and have a photo and/or memory of this missing American that you would like to share for our project, please contact me at:

REMARKS:

SYNOPSIS: Lance Corporal Jerry D. Dewberry was assigned to Company D, 1st Battalion, 1st Marines in Vietam. On July 5, 1968, just five days short of his twentieth birthday, Dewberry was part of a Marine unit sent on patrol in Quang Tri Province, South Vietnam.

During the patrol, the unit came under enemy fire and Dewberry was hit. He was apparently believed to be dead and left behind. Dewberry was officially listed Killed in Action/Body Not Recovered.

Jerry D. Dewberry is listed among the missing because his remains were never found to send home to the country he served.
