REMEMBRANCES

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 Mr. Green,
I have no relationship to you whatsoever, nor do I know who you were. I saw your name on the Vietnam memorial and at that moment I felt a connection to you. Although you are not someone I can put a face to, nor someone I share memories with, you are an American hero that gave your life for the citizens of The United States and me. I thank you with much gratitude and honor, and if I could sum up with words how thankful I am of your sacrifice to this country, I would do it in a heart beat. The fact remains that words cannot even come close to capturing the emotions of thanksgiving and pride I have towards you.
