REMEMBRANCES

LEFT FOR JOE WAYNE CHANDLER

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 hero’s 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

You did not know me, but yet you gave your life for me and the rest of this country. Today, though I did not know you, I would like to thank you for that sacrifice. As part of the Gridley High School posting project my fellow students and I are making sure that you and your fellow comrades will not be forgotten. Because of your great sacrifice, neither it nor you will be forgotten.

Thank You

I am leaving remembrances as part of a class project of Gridley High School, located in Gridley Illinois for random veterans thanking them for the great contribution they have given our nation. I want to give a sincere Thank You for serving our country, in the trying Vietnam times. Without people like you our great nation wouldn't exist. Thanks.
