Never Forgotten
CPL Milford Wensel was known as PA to all of us in 1st pltoon A troop 3rd Sqdn.4th Cav. He was liked by all for his unfailing cheerfulness and his helpfulness to any and all. His passing was a blow to his fellow troopers he left behind. I was the last person he had a conversation with as I had first watch on top of the tank and was to wake him for the next watch. A barrage of mortar rounds fell all around the tank killing him instantly and wounding me and the other two crewmen. He is never forgotten.

Remembering An American Hero
Posted on 2/23/14 - by Curt Carter ccarter02@earthlink.net
 
Dear CPL Milford Homer Wensel, sir As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for your sacrifice made on behalf of our wonderful country. The youth of today could gain much by learning of heroes such as yourself, men and women whose courage and heart can never be questioned. May God allow you to read this, and may He allow me to someday shake your hand when I get to Heaven to personally thank you. May he also allow my father to find you and shake your hand now to say thank you; for America, and for those who love you. With respect, and the best salute a civilian can muster for you, Sir Curt Carter

Milf was a terrific big brother. He loved his family and he loved God and serving his country. He will be forever missed by those who loved him. You became someone we could count on for love, support, a laugh or a shoulder to cry on. You had a heart of gold always ready to lend a hand.And you've left us with hearts full of memories that's all we have left. Each one treasured more than words can say.
 
 
To my loving brother

NEVER FORGOTTEN
Posted on 4/24/06 - by Bill Nelson grite@yahoo.com
 
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

Dear Milford, My name is Katie, and I’m part of the Gridley High School Posting Project, which consists of posting remembrances for all of you who fought in the war. Our goal is to post a remembrance for everyone on here. You will always be remembered for everything you have done for this country. You gave up so much for this country; you fought your hardest, and gave it your all. Just for that you will always be remembered. Sincerely, Katie

NEVER FORGOTTEN OFTEN MISSED
Posted on 12/26/03
 
If I should die and leave you here awhile, be not like others, sore undone, who keep long vigils by the silent dust, and weep. For MY sake, turn again to life, and smile, nerving thy heart and trembling hand, to do something to comfort other hearts than thine. Complete these dear, unfinished tasks of mine, and I, perchance, may therein comfort you
