REMEMBRANCES

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

The Great Class of '64, Lindenhurt High

Joe, I always respected you and looked up to you as my friend and classmate. You were always kind to me. We worked together in King Kullen. I was so sorry to see your name on The Wall. I finally grieved for you. I hope you like the gift I left there from Long Island and said the words in your memory during our ceremony. My visit to Viet Nam was also for your memory and an expression of my respect for all the vets; especially those killed and missing from that horrible war. I will always remember your sacrifice and our friendship back in those times.

Not forgotten

I think of Joe often and remember what a great guy he was. We played high school football together on a championship team in 1964. Joe was co-captain and the team's MVP. We all miss Joe and honor his memory.
