I never knew you

I never knew you but my dad did. He spoke of you several times when I was a boy and then never again. That is until not long before he died. He just said to me he wondered what you would have accomplished. He told me that the last time he saw you was the day that you got to Vietnam which was odly enough the day that he was leaving to come home. I wish that dad would have told me more about you and how he knew you. I often wondered if we were somehow related.

Regardless if we were related by blood, you and my dad were related in a much more important way. Brothers in Arms. You and my dad are reunited.God Bless You, Francis. Carry on.

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

NEVER FORGOTTEN OFTEN THAUGHT OF

If I should die and leave you here awhile, be not like others, sore undone, who keep long vigils by the silent dust, and weep. For MY sake, turn again to life, and smile, Nerving thy heart and trembling hand, to do something to comfort other hearts than thine. Complete these dear, unfinished tasks of mine, and I, perchance, may therein comfort you.
