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

Brave Sir,
I am posting remembrances for the honorable soldiers that perished in service of our country as part of the Gridley High School Posting Project. It is because of great men like you that we live in a free land today. I would like to thank you from the bottom of my heart for your selfless sacrifice. Your death was not in vain. May you rest in peace.

Gratefully,
Joel Campbell

In memory of Capt. Estein

I worked for Capt. Estein when he was Materiel Officer for the 185th Maintenance Battalion. I remember him showing me pictures of his family - his daughter was his "pride and joy". He was great guy. I was part of the detail that picked him up the night the jeep he and Maj. Wight were driving was hit by a mine.
