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, I am extremely grateful for the
ultimate sacrifice that you have paid for all of the
American citizens. We are doing a Gridley High School
Posting Project as a history project in Gridley,
Illinois. I view this as much more than just a
project though, I think of it as a great way to
remember those who have fallen for this great country.
I am just in aw at the courage that you had to have
to be willing to give up your live for the sake of
others and that you were completely unselfish, God
Bless.

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.
