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

Gone but not forgotten

I remember David, as he was called by family and friends, as an innocent young man. We fought alot, as sibling's so often do. We were starting to mature into the adults we were destined to become when that awful day of May 21, 1967 came and the news arrived by telegram that Gladys and Mack Henry lost a son and Dennis and I lost a brother.

Fallen hero

I may never have known you even if you had not made the ultimate sacrifice. I grew up many miles from your home and was born in 1966.

I am a freedom-loving American and duly respect those that protect what this country stands for.

Although you are listed as one of "only" 58,000 or so that gave your life in our misguided adventure in Southeast Asia, I feel that we share more than the 2/3 of a name. You, my dear friend, are, were, and shall continue to be, a beacon of hope!

I don't honestly know if we are related in any way, and even though my heart dies with every thought of a lost American soldier, I feel a special kinship with you, my dear lost brother.

Blessed be,

David Allen McInnis
