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

Connecting with the past

I am from Gridley High School, IL. Our whole school is reaching out to our pasts and posting remembrances under these names as a class project. I do not know who Bobby was. All I do know is what he was and what he did. Looking at the past of our nation one can see that it is truely the brave men and women like Bobby that have made our country great. Every American has those who have fought and stood up for what we stand for to thank. We need to thank them for their courage and for their selfless sacrifice. I thank you Bobby. You are a true hero. I sincerely give you my respect and gratitude. God Bless.
