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

You who gave his life for his country. You who gave his life for his beliefs, his ideas, his freedom.You who died so gallantly.You who have become My Hero.

American Hero

I am the niece of James David Borawski of Missouri. I too serve my country with the same beliefs that my uncle had. Even though I was born two years after my uncle's untimely death, I would hear my mother speak of his courage and love for our country, and my heart would swell with pride. Unfortunately my uncle died too soon in his life, however, his death was not in vain. He protected what we all take for granted at times...life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. I will never forget you Uncle Jimmie David Borawski, for you are a part of me, a part that is still very much alive. I will serve America as you once had, lunging towards truth and honor.

LT Michelle I. Carey
