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

thank you

My name is Sarah Ruff and I live in Gridley Illinois. I am part of the Gridley High School Posting Project. Hero, Patriot, role model, and human are all titles that you could be called. You are a hero because you fought to protect our country. You are a patriot because you wore our countries colors with honor. You are a role model for all the young soldiers because you committed you life to our country. Finally you are only human. You may have made mistakes, but you still loved and cherished our country. Your actions were courageous and honorable. No matter how many mistakes you may have made you will always be respected and honored. You will always be a hero, a patriot, and a role model to me and to many other Americans.
