An unforgetable friend --

I have no problem at all to
remember hearing you singing "The Letter" by the
Boxtops while working for me out in the shop at Goodyear in Wheaton. Seems
like only yesterday.

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

Never Forgotten

Dear Soldier,
I am posting remembrances on behalf of our Gridley High School Posting Project. My name is Amanda Kinney, I am 17 years old, and a senior at Gridley High School, but I’m sure this won’t be my last posting. I really enjoy doing this. It makes me think about all of the soldiers I write to and their feelings. You fought for our country, it took a lot of courage and bravery, and I respect you for that. I know I wouldn’t have the courage to do it. I would be so afraid, not knowing if I would be able to see another day, or be able to accomplish all my plans, but you did, you gave your Supreme Sacrifice. I find every Veteran on this wall very special. I just want let you know you will never be forgotten.

God Bless You,
Amanda
