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

Sax Man

Wayne was our sax player, and Sig Ep fraternity brother, in a rock band called the IFC's at N.C. State U. in 1963. Wayne was always smiling, and full of life. Our band members have tapes of our last performance together (now on a CD).
When I play the tape, and listen to Wayne blow "Honkey Tonk", I tear up every time. So he still lives with us in memory and a beautiful sound.

King of 60's Tenor Sax

Wayne and I played in four bands together if you count the NC State Marching band. A Glenn Miller type big band, the IFC's (beach and rock) and the Tassels (same). If anyone would like, I released a CD of the IFC's with his great sax. He was also a Sig Ep fraternity brother.
