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 and patriots 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

Thank you, brave soldier

Dear Ceasar,
I am a senior at Gridley High School and am creating this remembrance to you as part of a class project. I want you to know that I am extremely proud of you for fighting in Vietnam and sacrificing your life for the protection of others. I know you are sorely missed by your loved ones, and I offer my condolences to them. I remember you today. Rest in peace, brave soldier.

A Leader of Men

Sgt Bryant was a squad leader in the Blue Platoon of Apache Troop, 1st Squadron, 9th Cav, 1st Cav Division. His platoon was inserted as part of a blocking force in support of the 1st Brigade. They immediately ran into heavy contact and Sgt Bryant rallied his men, led them in an intense battle and was killed while organizing the defense. The platoon fought on until the next day. I had flown Sgt Bryant into many landing zones and he always led his men off the chopper. He was a fine example of an infantry squad leader. I also flew his body out of his last lz and I'll never forget the loss of such a man.
