POSTED BY: LAURA ALVAREZ FERNANDEZ

TU FAMILIA DE ASTURIAS.

Casualidades de la vida, y despues de 52 años de tu desaparación, he descubierto esta web.
Me alegra saber que cosechaste buenas amistades en tu estancia en EE. UU.
Hoy de tus hermanas, sigue viva mi abuela, tu hermana mayor, tiene 87 años y una grave enfermedad que dentro de poco nos la arrebatará.
Durante toda su vida nos ha transmitido tus logros, tus proezas, tu valentía en definitiva esos valores que llevais impregnados ella y tu en la sangre.
Una familia de raza y principios.
Allá donde te encuentres, espero que descanses en paz y te encuentres junto a los tuyos.
Desde Illas siempre te recordaremos con orgullo y amor.
Tu sobrina segunda.
Laura Álvarez Fernández.

Always loved and remembered!

Celso, I just wanted to express the love and admiration my father always had for you. You both communicated with a Christmas card every year. When your card did not arrive, he contacted the Army and he was given the sad news. All our family grieved you, we have always been very proud of you. You are a Hero. God bless you, may you rest in peace! Gloria Villamil

Remembering an American Hero

Dear Captain Celso A Perez, 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

If I should die...remembrances for CAPT. Celso A. PEREZ, USA...who made the ultimate sacrifice!!!!!!

If I should die, and leave you here awhile, be not like others, sore undone, who keep long vigils by the silent dust, and weep...for MY sake, turn again to lif, and smile...Nerving thy heart, and trembling hand to do something to comfort other hearts than thine...Complete these dear, unfinished tasks of mine...and I, perchnace, may therein comfort you.

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
