REMEMBRANCES

Michael Roy Dunn

Michael was the younger brother of my dear friend, Linda Dunn. He was such a sweet and very handsome young man, who enlisted in the Army because he wanted so much to serve his country. He was such a brave soul. He left a loving family, an older brother and 4 sisters and 2 very loving parents. It was so devastating to his family and all who knew Michael, when it was learned he was missing in action, then later finding out he had sacrificed his life. I have thought about Michael often over the years and wondered what his life might have become. God bless him and may he rest in peace.

A Wonderful, Special Young Man

Michael was my very close friend's wonderful little brother and son to two wonderful, caring parents. His blue eyes and smile would light up a room. I will never forget how Linda and I would get spooked out when he'd come in the room as we were in deep conversation. His eyes would be opened wide, and I think we scared him, too. He was just a young teen-ager at that time. Who would have ever known that this wonderful boy would go to Viet Nam and his life would end there. To this day, I remember Linda calling me to tell me he was "missing in action". For a moment, I didn't get it. Wasn't long after that he was found and his remains returned to the town he loved, N. Andover, MA. By now, he could have been a husband, father, grandfather. Such a loss for his family and all those who loved him. God Bless You, Michael, for giving your life to protect all of us. You will never be forgotten. Love, Dick & Ursula

Remembering an American Hero

Dear SGT Michael Roy Dunn, sir,

As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for the ultimate sacrifice that you made on behalf of our wonderful country. The youth of today could gain much by learning of heroes such as yourself, men and women whose courage and heart can never be questioned.

May God allow you to read this, and may He allow me to someday shake your hand when I get to Heaven to personally thank you. And please know that men and women like you have stepped forward to defend our country yet again, showing the same love for country and their fellow Americans that you did- you would be proud.

With respect, and the best salute that a civilian can muster for you.

Curt Carter

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 hero’s 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 heros 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
