I wear the ring....

I've been engaged to his nephew James William Mertens for about 5 years...I was given the ring that was made out of the stones from the ring that he bought for his fiance before he was killed. She returned the engagement ring to the family, and his mother had one single ring made of all the diamonds. It's absolutely beautiful! James' Mom (Robert's little sister) Mae gave him the ring to give to me. I will always wear it with love in my heart and hope that you are at peace in this great universe, Uncle Robert. May you forever fly with the angels of Heaven.

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
