A daughters love

Hi daddy, this is Karen Lenae I have spent my whole life thinking what I would say to you if I ever got a chance. Now that chance is here and my mind is in shock and my heart is overflowing with emotion. Thank you daddy for fighting and paying the ultimate price for our freedom. I have always had a since of pride knowing what you were fighting for. Jerry Don kept his promise to you, he looked after me until the day he died. I love you daddy and I can't wait till we meet again. I want to get to know you as a person I never got that chance here on earth. I want to learn all about you and our family. I love you daddy, I have never forgotten. Love you, Karen

To the Grandfather I never got to meet

In so many more ways than a few words could possibly describe, I thank you. I will never have the opportunity to know you in this life, but know that you live on. I tell my children of you and of your service and sacrifice. They admire you, and so do I. Two years ago I finally had the opportunity to visit the wall with mom and sissy and see and feel your name. It was a profound experience. You may be gone but will not be forgotten. I love you

Remembering an American Hero

Dear SSGT Jerry Robert Jones, 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.



May God allow you to read this, and may He allow me to someday shake your hand when I get to Heaven to personally thank you. May he also allow my father to find you and shake your hand now to say thank you; for America, and for those who love you.



With respect, and the best salute a civilian can muster for you, Sir



Curt Carter

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
