No Fear

High School classmates. Didn't really pal around, but will never forget the Sr class gathering at the train trestle over Lake Dallas. It had to be higher than Niagara Falls as only half of us had the marbles to jump off feet first. After jumping I look up to see you in the most perfect swan dive. Thought at the time that there goes one Brave MF'er. Guess you toted that Bravery to the Nam and gave it all you had,Mr Jim.
That dive certainly gets bigger with time and knowing your story.
Visit your name every time I go to Fair Park.

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
