REMEMBRANCES

LEFT FOR WILLIAM STEPHEN WOODS

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

Remembering a Great Soldier

In our U.S. History class we have been asked to post remembrances for those who have given their lives for us. Even though I didn’t personally know this soldier I owe him a great debt of gratitude. Your sacrifices that you have made fighting for our country will never be forgotten. Thank you.

I am a student at Gridley High School doing a Posting Project, and I just wanted to write to you guys and thank you for all that you have done to save our country. If I could do it, I would like to thank you guys in person. Thanks for being so brave at what you have done for us.
