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 Sir,
As a sophomore at Gridley High School in Gridley, Illinois, I am currently involved in the Gridley High School Posting Project. In this assignment, I was asked to focus on honoring the fallen soldiers of the Vietnam War. At this point in my life, I am starting to prepare for college and making other decisions that pertain to my future. However, at such a young age, you were deciding to fight for the country you loved. Your commitment to America’s future is an inspiration to coming Americans. Thank you for setting an example and sacrificing your life so others may live in peace with freedom; your life shall never be forgotten.
