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

Ashau Valley

Only 20 years old as he rode into battle with me on 24 APR 1968 at 1400hrs as the left waist gunner on our CH-47, Chinook Helicopter during a Tactical Emergency flight to deliver Artillery Ammo to a Firebase underseige in the Ashau Valley. As we crossed the Firebase perimeter we came under heavy AK-47 fire directly underneath us. PFC Caballero was killed. The aircraft received serious damage and we were still able to deliver the Ammo and return to Camp Evans. PFC David Joe Caballero held the standard high for all of us to see the streamers of Faith, Hope, Charity, Duty, Honor, Country. Thank you for your service. Peace Be with You! John R. Fox, MAJ, USA (Ret)
