A Friend and Comrade in Arms

I served with 'Brownie or Stoney depending on who was asking' and the others ofbrIndia Company, 35 1st Marine Division. I was there, that day in the stream bed when we where ambushed. Our Platoon, the 3rd, had point that afternoon. We rounded a corner and all hell broke loose. Walter and others were right up front and were the first to come under heavy fire from NVA. We lost him and many others that late July afternoon. I remember being in Hawaii with him and others during our trip over. We spent one rip roaring night out drinking and having a good time. I remember all of us sleeping under a park bench, on the beach that night. I remember Brownie and I standing at the edge of the water that night, talking and throwing an empty beer bottle into the ocean. Talking about when we were going to come home someday. Brownie was a small man by size, but big in heart and a lot of fun to go and party with and one hell of a fine Marine. Take care buddy. Tom Gainer [email protected]

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
