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 all your "Band of Nam Brothers"

Thank you

My name is Sarah and I am a senior at Gridley High School in Gridley Illinois. I am doing an assignment for one of my classes, posting remembrances for those that lost their lives in the Vietnam War. As I sit and wonder what it must of been like for you to set aside you family and friends to defend your country, I wonder if I would be able to do it. I want to thank you for your courage and your bravery in protecting our country. You are a role model for the young men and women who are now performing the same tasks as you once did. I want you to know that I think of you as a hero because of you actions in helping our country. Thanks for helping mold America into what it is today. Sarah
