I wish that I would have known you in person :(

Arthur Allen was a very good friend of my mothers and I found out last year that he may be my biological father . My heart breaks at not knowing him personally or any of his beloved family. I just turned 43 years old and miss the relationship that a daddy/ daughter have. I pray that you are always with me and that I may find the answers some day soon. I love you and Thank You for your service so that we may love today . Rest in peace <3

A Cousin to be Proud Of

Arthur Allen Callister was my favorite cousin. We played together, caused a little trouble together. He was a brave kid and a lot of fun. His birthday was just before mine, and I envied the great cakes his Mom made. We played cowboys and Indians and kind of gave our little sisters a hard time. I remember rolling down huge mountains of wool at his dad's business. Luckily we didn't get any ticks. My family moved away and I didn't see him a lot as I got older, but I loved him. He was a good kid and a good soldier and a good man. I miss him and I thank him for giving his life in service to his country.

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
