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 all your "Band of Nam Brothers"

Sacrifice

What is a sacrifice? Throughout everyones' lives a sacrifice has been given. In my eyes, your sacrifice was one that can not be more self-less and caring for other people. The one and only life that you had was given to your country so that i may have the rights to freedom of speech, religion. Although this is a post that i am doing for the "Gridley High School Posting Project," this is a topic that touches very close to my heart. I may never have the opportunity to sacrifice my life for my country the way you have had the chance to. In a few years when i join the army, im risking my life for my country. I may never have that opportunity that you did to die for your country. And because of what you gave up, that makes you a hero in not just my eyes, but in fellow Americans' eyes. I thank you for the ultimate sacrifice that you gave.
