REMEMBRANCES

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

It was our privledge....

I know I can speak for all of us who served with Randy in the 1/6th 198th LIB. It was our privledge to have known him and serve with him. Randy was a true hero who gave to others.

It was very difficult the day he was killed. We did not want to believe it and the one question that never leaves me is,"Why"?

It was hard to return home, knowing that Randy and others did not return.

These feelings do not begin to compare to what his family must have went through.

The 20 years that Randy lived were a gift from God and this is what I hope his family focuses on when remembering Randy.

Randy's parents can be very proud of him. On behalf of our unit, thank you for the way you raised Randy. May God through Jesus Christ comfort you.

not to forget

I never met Randy, but I work with his brother Drex. He sounds like he was a fine person. Randy was the youngest in his family. They don't know why he had to die. Illinois lost many young men to the war.I wish he were with us, and his family, today.
