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

Take The Challenge

I am a senior at Gridley High School in Gridley, Illinois and I recently received the challenge to recognize and remember 100 of the Vietnam War Veterans. This challenge has been labeled the Gridley High School Posting Project. One of my teachers is a Vietnam Veteran and feels that these people who gave their lives should have some type of a remembrance. I feel that this challenge is one that will make an impact to at least one person. So now, I challenge you, who are reading this to remember these amazing people who paid the ultimate sacrifice.

A Friend Remembers...

I served with Chuck and often visited him in his “hootch” in my unit's previous camp location. He was killed while we were within 12 kilometers of his location on an area patrol.

We visited him in his camp several times after his unit replaced ours, and I was impressed by his maturity and great sense of humor.

I was both deeply touched and saddened by his loss.

I am sure his memory will live on for for his wonderful personally - and the great sacrifice he made for all of us.

A note to Cpt Henn's family

I knew Cpt Henn in Vietnam and would love to contact any members of his family. We were pretty good friends while there. I can be contacted at [email protected]. I have many stories I would like to share with any members of Tex's family (we called him Tex, a long story but a funny one).
