I remember

Capt. Geneseo had just taken command of my A team before my tour of duty was over. I left for Nha Trang out processing where word came to me of his passing along with others.

Capt. Geneseo had not been there long enough to know him well, but he was, indeed, a proficent soldier with a real touch of decency and humanity.

The last memory I have of him is the day I left the A team. He was kneeled down doing something with a prc-25 radio, maybe changing a battery. He stopped what he was doing to wish me the best as I climbed aboard the chopper.

It was only days later that he was KIA. News came to me in Nha Trang just before I left country.

I was saddened for the loss, and have never forgotten Capt. Louis Geneseo.

A salute to Louis and his family.

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
