REMEMBRANCES

LEFT FOR WILLIAM LEE HARRIS

I Never Forgot You, Wee Wee

At Bruce you were my friend and listened to my "silly" problems and gave me advice. When you left, I NEVER thought I would not see you again. But, we were much too young to ever think of anything like pain, injury or death. I still love and miss you my friend although it has been 40 years since you went home. When you float through the shadows of my mind, I still feel a sadness for the boy that never got to grow into the man he could have been. One day our spirits will meet again and talk and laugh about the "good old days". Until then.......

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-laden 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

Always

Many days have gone by since I received that terrible news that you would not be coming back. The joy that you gave in the short time that God allowed you to stay here on earth will not be forgotten. I will ALWAYS remember you dear Wee Wee.
Ruth
