REMEMBRANCES

LEFT FOR JERRY WENDELL HAMMOCK
POSTED ON 4.17.2006
POSTED BY: Bill Nelson

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

EACH DAY

EACH DAY I READ THE NAMES, PLACE OF ENLISTMENT, AND MOS.
TODAY THE DAY BEFORE MY 56 BIRTHDAY I POST THIS FOR A 11B10 THAT DID NOT SEE MAY 18TH.
REST IN PEACE JERRY WENDELL HAMMOCK AND KNOW THAT THE PRICE YOU PAID ON MAY 17, 1968 IS FAR ABOVE WHAT MOST AMERICANS TODAY WOULD GIVE FOR COUNTRY OR EVEN THE STATE OF TENNESSEE.
THERE IS NO MORE HUMPING THE BUSH.
