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

Gratitude from an Andrew Hill High School Alumnus

We were on the bus together to the Oakland AFEES induction center that dark and gray morning. I remember how determined you were to get into the Marines. I believe you could have received a medical waiver due to your high blood pressure, but you would exercise then have your blood pressure taken again. On the third attempt, you told me your blood pressure was still too high, but you were accepted never-the-less. This brought you joy.

You were born to be a Marine. You died a Marine. Our country owes you a sincere debt of gratitude. I want your family to know that your memory and ultimate sacrifice will always be with those who knew you, Dennis.

Rest in the peace of the Lord, and may God continually bless you and the family you left behind.
