Christmas 2005

George,
Merry Christmas to you 2005. I often think about the guys from our town who went to Vietnam and served with honor. I pray that our honor is never disgraced. We were both from the neighborhood and attended PLHS.Many fond memories of growing up in a small town where everyone knew your name and family.I served in 1969 with the 199th Infantry ,however, the Lord for reasons unknown to me at the time spared my life and returned me back to the world. I believe that He had work for me to complete. My prayers go out to your family on their loss. I often stop at the Vietnam memorial in NJ to say hello to you and those from our town.God Bless Merry Christmas Bob Cusick

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 heros 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 heros 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

I am doing these remembrances as a project for my U.S History class at Gridley High School in Gridley, IL. Just because this is a project that I have to do, doesn't mean that I don’t have feelings for what these people have died for. You and many others died for this country. Many of you never got remembered, some may have never gotten proper burials. Despite the trying times that you had you stuck with your task, regardless of the situation that you have to face.
