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.


From your Nam-Band-Of-Brothers

Never Forgotten

Always Remembered

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 all your "Band of Nam Brothers"

Never Forgotten

Dear Soldier,
I am writing to you on behalf of our Gridley High School Posting Project. My name is Amanda Kinney, I am 17 years old, and a senior at Gridley High School. You sacrificed, fought, and died for our country when you were close to my age. I respect all the soldiers for that. I know I would not have the courage to do what you had to do. I just want you to know that you will never be forgotten.

Never Forgotten,
Amanda

I want to thank you for giving up your life, that my compatriots and I might have a better future.
