REMEMBRANCES

LEFT FOR THOMAS MILTON AARON JR

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 heros 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 heros 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

The Quarterback

When you're in H.S. no one is more important than the QB. THOMAS MILTON AARON JR -- you were our QB. We later had our Billy "White Shoes" but we'll never know -- could you have been the "Johnny U" for Philly back in 1973. Our country was dishonest when it sent our soldiers to fight in Vietnam but don't hold the grudge against the warriors since they only answered their nation's call. What a waste of humanity! Why do the poor or middle class always fight for the elite? America gives us freedom - let everyone ring the bell -- bring back the DRAFT!!!! NO STUDENT DEFERMENTS!!!! Everyone must answer the call and serve their time in HELL!!

A brave soldier from Linwood

Goodbye, America's heroes, we have shamefully failed to stand by you, for all the wrong reasons which had tempted us aside! Now we must pay the price for letting those who survived down, as well knowing some whodidn"t have to die have died! We must honor them every day when we see their names upon the Wall! And from every corner of the land, they answered to the call! Every soldier sailor airman and Marine and Coastguardsman, too...they all gave their lives so we could live beneath the old Red, White, and Blue. For those who've gone before, we say "WELL DONE! Be thou at peace!" We salute this fine soldier whose devotion to DUTY, HONOR, and COUNTRY will Never...I say again, will NEVER be extinguished from our minds.
