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

Thank You

Dear soldier,
Thank you, My name is Zach Nicolay and I am a student at Gridley High School. This remembrance is part of the Gridley High School Posting Project. There is no way that I can fathom the courage and fearlessness that is required to go to war, and I want to thank you for paying the ultimate sacrifice in order to create a better, safer future for myself and others.

Thank You

Hello, my name is Jamie Dennison. I am part of the Gridley High School posting project, and I just wanted to take time out of my busy and selfish schedule to write and thank you for everything you have done for this country. You probably did not realize that you gave up your time, family, friends, and future to rid yourself of selfishness. By doing so you gave me freedom and you gave me courage. Thank you for not being selfish and for doing what Christ wanted you to do for him. You will always be remembered in my life and the lives of others who come across your name and this remembrance.

Jesus Loves You,
Jamie Dennison

My name is Jeremy Steffen. I am from a suburban part of central Illinois and attend Gridley High School. This is for the Gridley High School Posting Project. Our class was recently given the challenge to write remembrances for the fallen soldiers that died in Vietnam if they did not previously have them. Thank you for serving in our armed forces and protecting our country. God bless.
