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

Gridley High School Posting Project

Dear Eddie,
My name is Katie, and I’m part of the Gridley High School Posting Project, which consists of posting remembrances for all of you who fought in the war. Our goal is to post a remembrance for everyone on here. You will always be remembered for everything you have done for this country. You gave up so much for this country; you fought your hardest, and gave it your all. Just for that you will always be remembered.
Sincerely,
Katie

With Appreciation of Eddie

Eddie, you never knew me and I am not related to you. However, I am sincerely grateful of you service to America. I am a Junior at Grildey High School and we are working as a school to post a thank you remembrance for every soldier on the wall. This is only a brief note to show my appreciation and say thanks. It is a real honor to post this simple message in your recognition. God bless
