Remembering An American Hero

Dear 1LT Adano Hernendez Madrid, 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

Knew in High School

I recently was looking at my past yearbooks and remembered Adano. We were in the same division for 2 years in Chicago. I set out on the web to search for "where is he now?" It wasn't till I found this site with his picture that confirmed of his passing. Adano was a good man with very high standards. God bless him and his family.

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

Hero

Hello, my name is Kristin Butikofer and I attend Gridley High School in Gridley, Illinois. For my World History class, I was recently assigned to make remembrances for the Gridley High School Posting Project for the soldiers that lost their lives in the Vietnam War. You left many things behind, but the most important thing you left behind was your life. I know I will never have to go through all the pain and suffering you went through, but if you hadn't done what you did for our country, things would be much different. I respect you greatly. You will never be forgotten and you will always be remembered as a hero. Thank you so much and God bless.
