Killed In Action

If you are able, save them a place inside you … and save one backward glance when you are leaving for places they can no longer go.

Be not ashamed to say you loved them, though you may or may not have always.

Take what they have left and what they have taught you with their dying and keep it with your own.

And in time when men decide and feel safe to call war insane, take one moment to embrace those gentle heroes you left behind.

MAJ Michael D. O’Donnell, MIA 20 Mar 1970
