I still miss you, Michael
Michael: I knew you as a friend in dog training in Ft. Benning and served with you with the 57th Scout Dog Platoon, 198th Infantry Brigade, Americal Division, Bayonet fire base (Chu Lai). I will never forget you and think of you often. I can only honor you by living a life of integrity, honesty, faithfulness (especially to my wife of 34 years)and love for my country. I miss you.

"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

One Among Many
I never knew him personally, but I heard his name spoken when we were learning the TET offensive and Quang Nai during my Vietnam class. He was someone my Vietnam teacher knew. I have learned so much during that course, and my heart aches for all those 58,000 and more people who were killed during this brutal and senseless war. Michael R. Munch will be remembered at least by me, even though I never heard his voice, saw his face, or knew his life.
