You will be/are honored!

A lot has happened since you left this world to be with our Lord and Savior. The pain in your mothers heart never went away. She left us to join you 4 days after her 78th birthday and 1 or 2 days after the 39th anniversary of your death depending on whether you go by US dates or Vietnam dates. She fought a long hard battle, I believe she hung on as long as she could to join you on this anniversary. I think you would be very proud of her battle and your little brother David, he took great care of her in his home for the last 6 months of her life. We have enjoyed discovering pictures of you and your parents we did not know existed. How I wish I had met you before you left to serve our country. I am proud of you and all that you did and how you gave your life for your brothers in combat as well as our great country. Your flag will proudly be displayed in our home as our honor to you and your sacrifice. So that others may also honor you, we will find a place to display your uniform. I am getting to know the person you were by reading all of your letters home, I am thankful your mother and grandmother provided me this opportunity. Rest in peace, we love and honor you.

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 heros 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
