Photo Collage

Gary was a member of the 101st Airborne. During the Tet offensive of late January 1968 the 82nd Airborne suffered a 25% casualty rate. Late Feb. early March of 1968 one fifth of the 101st were sent to support the 82nd. That is where Gary met his fate.

The last picture to be taken of Gary was with his family in Indiana. The picture was taken in black and white, color cameras were rare at that time. The photo was later colorized by being painted over. The other photos are from boot-camp, his high school graduation and two others of his school years.

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
