Hero

We were asked to help another Plt that was pinned down near a bunker complex full of NVA. Dwight was amoung the Marines that were trying to rescue these Marines, and died trying. B.J. and Joe were wounded also. These were true Hero's, they risked their lives to save their fellow Marines.Semper Fi ,long live their memory.

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

I served with Dwight

Dwight and I both served with the 2nd Platoon, India Company, 3rd Battalion, 5th Marines. Dwight and I trained together at Camp Lejeune in North Carolina and later went to Viet Nam together. I will always recall fondly of Dwight talking about springtime in the hills of Tennessee. Dwight will be remembered as the true southern gentleman that he was. He will be missed.
