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

Constant Reminder

This was a haunting purchase--I attend North Georgia College & State University, where POW-MIA bracelets are a tradition among the Corps of Cadets (Army ROTC). I didn't look at the names before I pulled one off the shelf; I only realized SSGT Kennedy's name when I put it on. I am currently attempting to trace my lineage to see if we are related. I am saving up for a trip to visit his name on the Wall, hopefully soon. This bracelet haunts me because he was reported MIA at age 19: I am 19. It makes me realize how precious every service member's life is, because it can be so short.
