You were so loved and missed
You had the most wonderful family who loved and miss you so very much. You were your brothers hero! You had the sweetest mom in the world. She missed you terribly. Your dad was a sweetie to! All your neighbors and friends from Utica loved you. May you rest in peace.

Childhood  Acquaintance
Calvin OK
Just Wanted You to Know
When you died in the Tet Offensive, I was nine and growing up, as you did, in Calvin. You probably didn't even remember me. But I have never forgotten you. And I've never forgotten that cold winter's day when you were brought home to southeastern Oklahoma and carried so gently to your resting place in the beautiful, old cemetery on the hill. Ancient Black Jacks and Sycamores stand guarding you tonight. I've never forgotten my Grandma's tears when she saw the pictures of your funeral in the Calvin Chronicle. 'Blessed be the Peacemakers . . .' one picture's caption said. Thank you, Morrison. I just wanted you to know that you have not and will never be forgotten.

The young dead soldiers do not speak.
Nevertheless, they are heard in the still houses:
who has not heard them?
They have a silence that speaks for them at night
and when the clock counts.
They say: We were young. We have died.
Remember us.
They say: We have done what we could
but until it is finished it is not done.
They say: We have given our lives but until it is finished
no one can know what our lives gave.
They say: Our deaths are not ours: they are yours,
they will mean what you make them.
They say: Whether our lives and our deaths were for
peace and a new hope or for nothing we cannot say,
it is you who must say this.
We leave you our deaths. Give them their meaning.
We were young, they say. We have died; remember us.
by Archibald MacLeish,
1892-1982, American Poet

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
