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

Childhood Memory

To the family of Randall Farlow : Upon my mother's death in 1997, I was cleaning out her home and found a copy of the book ( East Peru Iowa 1887-1997 ). On page 180 is a tribute to Randy Farlow. My Grandmother( Margret Slinker Travis )and mother( Ruth Slinker Ferguson ) were both born in Peru. Grandmother lived next to the railroad tracks by the post office and I recall playing with Randy Farlow ( red hair )as a child. I too was in Viet Nam with the First Infantry and the Americal Divison in 1970. May he rest in peace.
