Del Norte County Historical Society Museum

On the second floor of the Del Norte County Historical Society Museum in Crescent City, CA is a display case which honors soldiers who lost their life in Vietnam. The display case sits beneath a plaque provided by the Pacific Northwest Chapter of Vietnow. The plaque was dedicated May 1, 1997, and begins with the inscription “All Gave Some…Some Gave All…Some Are Still Giving…” It also lists the names of 32 soldiers who lost their life in the war. On display inside the case are many of the items left by family and loved ones at The Moving Wall, a replica of the national Vietnam Veterans Memorial wall that was on display in Crescent City at Beachfront Park July 1-7, 1993.

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

Fellow Marine

Semper Fi to a fellow Marine, I can still hear your best friend Watson who cried all night when you left us so bravely on that day in May of 1969. We lost many heroes from India Company on that day. You Sir, were one of the bravest and I salute you.
