Dear SP4 Clarence Michael Holland, sir

As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for your sacrifice made on behalf of our wonderful country. The youth of today could gain much by learning of heroes such as yourself, men and women whose courage and heart can never be questioned.

With respect, Sir

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 and patriots 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

My School Buddy

If Clarence Michael Holland is the same kid
I grew up with in Evansville, Indiana then I
feel my words carry a bit more weight. If not then I hope this helps his family.

Clarence Holland and I went to Howard Roosa Elementary School. We played in the junkyard, broke bottles, a few windows, and climbed trees, too. Clarence was black and I was white but that never seemed to matter to us. When I cut my hand on a coke bottle in the junkyard, of course, he helped me get home to my mother.

If his family reads this I can be reached at < [email protected] >.

Thank you, Clarence, for being a good friend
and buddy.

Adios and Sawadee,

Terry W. Colvin
