LEFT FOR ROBERT GEORGE HUFSCHMID
POSTED ON 11.29.2010

If I should die...remembrances for MAJ. Robert George HUFSCHMID, USA...who died for our country!!!!!

If I should die, and leave you here awhile, be not like others, sore undone, who keep long vigils by the silent dust, and weep...for MY sake, turn again to life, and smile...Nerving thy heart, and trembling hand to do something to comfort other hearts than thine...Complete these dear, unfinished tasks of mine...and I, perchance, may therein comfort you.

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

You Hold A Special Place In My Heart

Dear Robert,
I am a student from Gridley High School in Gridley, Illinois. I am doing a project that involves writing remembrances for those who maybe don’t even have a remembrance. I never knew you, but I wish I could have gotten the opportunity to thank you personally for all that you did in the Vietnam War. Your dedication to help save our country means so much . You are a true hero and will always be remembered as one. Thank you so much again for all that you did and may God bless you and your family.
Sincerely,
Kelsey Zehr
