Donnie Ginart, my childhood friend

Don Ginart and I were friends in grade school (Bienville in New Orleans) and in junior high at McDonough #28. We played together, stayed at each other's homes as kids, sold ice cones in front of his house (just a block from mine) and picked berries in a field which would become a grade school 10 years later. We were inseparable. We were the managers of a city wide championship basketball team in the 8th grade. Neither of us were very athletic!!I have told my kids about our special relationship and hoped that they one Day would know someone as special as Donnie, as he was called then. By oldest son, now 37, and I went to the Vietnam Memorial in Washington and found his name and traced it on a piece of paper. I will never forget this brave hero who died so that I could write this piece freely. My prayers go to his surviving family. If you want to reach out to me I would be honored. Don' s friend. David L. Larson, MD

Remembering An American Hero

Dear 1LT Donald Francis Ginart, sir

As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for your sacrifice made on behalf of our wonderful country. The youth of today could gain much by learning of heroes such as yourself, men and women whose courage and heart can never be questioned.

May God allow you to read this, and may He allow me to someday shake your hand when I get to Heaven to personally thank you. May he also allow my father to find you and shake your hand now to say thank you; for America, and for those who love you.

With respect, and the best salute a civilian can muster for you, Sir

Curt Carter

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:
... and rest forever in the shade of our love, brother.

From your Nam-Band-Of-Brothers
