Thank you, forever brave one
I want you to know, how much, my family and I appreciate, your sacrifice and the sacrifice, of your loved, ones. My father served, in Korean and Vietnam. Because, of you and men and women, like you, our country is, the most powerful nation, on this earth. I have always been, a proud American, never disrespecting the decision, our government officials, made, in sending our loved ones, over, to a foreign country, in order, to assist those persecuted, by other, more powerful governments. I wanted you to know, especially, on this day, how much you, are still loved, by this country and especially, your family. May God bless, your loved ones, still here, with us. May they know, of his eternal, love and mercy. Thank you and your family, for making this, the United States, of America. We salute you!

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 heros 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
I attend Gridley High School in Gridley, IL and I am completing this remembrance as part of the Gridley High School Posting Project. We have so many blessing in this country that we take for granted! We owe our freedom to heroes like you who dedicated your life to preserve freedom! Your bravery and devotion will never be forgotten! Thank you!
