An old warrior's wish 'When I am dead, cry for me a little. Think of me sometimes, but not too much. It is not good for you to dwell too long. Think of me now and again as I was in life, at some moment which is pleasant to recall, but not for long. Leave me in peace as I shall leave you, too, in peace.'

Peace and condolence, to the family and friends. ?He which hath no stomach, to this fight, let him depart. But we in it, shall be remembered. We few, we happy few, we band of brothers!! For he today, that sheds his blood with me, shall always be my brother.? Rest in peace brave soldier, you have not been forgotten. (W.Shakespeare) May God Bless you, for your Sacrifice!!!

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

They paid the price
On this beautiful day in Gridley, IL I look out the window and see the mourning sun making shadows across the yard. In the distance I see cars passing on Route 24. Where are they going? What is their business? It is peaceful outside. It brings me a feeling of peace. Then I turn back to the computer screen and am faced with a sad truth. That peace has come at a price. And it is a price that our nation will be forever indebted to. I ask myself why. Why did these brave men and women die for our country? I am left without an answer, but filled with gratitude. Gratitude for each and every soul who fought and died for our country. Gratitude to those who have secured the happiness of so many. God Bless All. I will remember.
