Thank you for your service to our country so long ago sir. I am heartened you returned home after the passage of so many years though I wish it had been under very different circumstances. May you rest in eternal peace.

Thank You

Dear Maj. George Quamo, Thank you for your service as a Special Forces Qualified Infantry Unit Commander. I researched you on the 54th anniversary of the start of your tour. Glad you were identified in 1974. Welcome home. Saying thank you isn't enough, but it is from the heart. Tomorrow is Independence Day. Time passes quickly. Please watch over America, it stills needs your strength, courage and faithfulness, especially now. Rest in peace with the angels.

Borrowed words for Major Quamo, America’s son, Soldier par excellence.

“…‘Forgotten grave!’, the selfish plea awakes no deep response in me; for though his grave I may not see, my boy will ne're forgotten be. My real son can never die; `tis but his body that may lie in foreign land, and I shall keep remembrance food, forever, deep within my heart of my true son because of triumphs that he won. It matters not where anyone may lie or sleep when work is done….” “My Son” by James D. Hughes.

Arlington is a far-away place. I keep the Major in my heart.

playing harmonica at traveling Vietnam Memorial Wall

I found George's name, sat on ground below and played some songs for him, like Amazing Grace, the Army theme song and others with tears running down my cheeks. It was the only way I could think of to honor him personally. As an ex Air Force Nurse who cared for our wounded from Nam I have ultimate respect for Major Quamo and remember him at Averill Park as our star quarterback which puts a smile on my face with that memory.

Final Mission of MAJ George Quamo

MAJ George Quamo was deputy commander of FOB 3, Command and Control North (CCN), MACV SOG.

Initially listed as Missing in Action, his remains were later found and returned to U.S. soil on June 28, 1974, and positively identified August 15, 1974. MAJ Quamo was buried at Arlington National Cemetery. [Taken from pownetwork.org and macvsog.cc]
