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:
... and rest forever in the shade of our love, brother.

From your Nam-Band-Of-Brothers

Do not stand at my grave and weep

Do not stand at my grave and weep
I am not there; I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow,
I am the diamond glints on snow,
I am the sun on ripened grain,
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning's hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry,
I am not there; I did not die.

Mary Frye – 1932

DC Johnson Air Evac Tech

I was stationed with DC Johnson at Rhein Main AB Germany in the 60's and was stationed with him at Clark AB, Phillipines in the 70's. We had a lot fun flying to Athens Greece and other countries in Europe. I rembember that day in April 1975. I was watching the news at Bob St Maur house when we found out about the C5A Babylift aircraft crash. I still stay in contact with two survivors. Sgt Phil Wise and Msgt Olen Boutwell. would like to hear from any family members.

Twenty-four years without mention?

We all use to call him D.C. (Denning C. Johnson) he and I were stationed together several times. As medics flying air evacuation flights for the Air Force we served together both stateside, overseas, and vietnam.

I can't remember which was the hardest for me to take -- hearing that D.C. augered in with a plane load of Vietnamese orphans in 1975 or learning that no one has placed any rememberance here.

D.C., great job, you cared, and so do I. We miss you.
