If I should die...remembrances for PFC Florian Henry KUSS, USA...Strasburg's bravest of heroes!!!!!!

If I should die, and leave you here awhile, be not like others, sore undone, who keep long nvigils 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 therei n 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

Thank you

Dear Soldier
I am part of the senior class of Gridley High School in Gridley Illinois. People in our school are making remembrances for the virtual wall for many of the soldiers that died in the Vietnam War. You have my greatest thanks for paying the supreme sacrifice for the United States. It is a privilege to live in this country. Your service, loyalty, and love for this country helps make what this country is today. Sincerely
Brian Vercler
