Operation Buffalo: USMC Fight for the DMZ by Keith W. Nolan

Operation Buffalo: USMC Fight for the DMZ by Keith W. Nolan captures the courage, fear, sacrifice and pain of those brave Marines who fought and died during Operation Buffalo (July 2-15, 1967). The book vividly chronicles the efforts of the U.S. Marines to defend the DMZ in 1967, describing the hardships of these undersupplied troops as they faced attacks from the North Vietnamese. The book recounts the loss of many individual Marines by soldiers who were present at the battle, providing a graphic account of the sacrifice that took place during those two tragic weeks in July 1967.

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

Thank you

My name is Heidi Finck and I attend the Gridley High School. I’m doing a project for my History class. While doing this project I realized there was more to this project than I thought. I now realize that if it wasn’t for soldiers like you I would not have the freedoms I have today, so now I look at you and I am proud of what you have done for me. I will never forget the obligations you had to do for your country. You will always be respected and never forgotten.
