Our time togrther

I remember our younger years together, the things we did, our vacation at the finger lakes and the Ford Museum with your DAD & sister. The good times before we went into the Service. My parents told me of your visit in December of 1967, prior to your 2nd tour in Nam. I wish I was there, but duty called. I visit your grave in Norwalk as often as I can. Soon we would be 72, getting close to the end of the road for me, so I'll see you soon. Till then.

A shared grief..

Michael..... I have only recently discovered that you and my husband Spc4 Thomas Beeb Chambers along with Pfc Stephen J. Whipple and Pfc Hobson Covington were all together on that dreadful day of December 15, 1967.
My husband died of his injuries on December 16, 1967 and Hobson Covington later died of his injuries on December 29, 1967.

I have tried to locate a photograph of you to post on this wall...You will Never be Forgotten...We honor your service and your sacrifice...may you rest in Eternal Peace.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear SSGT Michael Bradley Paquin, 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

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 heros 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 heros 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
