"I didn't know you but i know more about you than many. You were brave. You were only 19 and you fought for your country anyway. You had your life ahead of you but you cared about the lives of others over yours. You were a true American Hero and I thank you for that. You will never be forgotten."

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

Our generation is grateful.

Dear soldier,
I am writing this to express my undying gratefulness for your willingness to serve the Land of the Free. You gave the supreme sacrifice, being struck down in battle, protecting your country. Our generation has not forgotten you and the generations to come will not forget either. Thank you and God bless.
