Vietnam
All Gave Some - Some Gave All
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, 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 the time when men decide and feel safe to call the war insane, take one moment to embrace those gentle heroes you left behind.
- Major Michael Davis O'Donnell
January 1, 1970 - Dak To, Vietnam

Note: Major O'Donnell was a helicopter pilot. On 24 March 1970, while attempting to rescue eight soldiers, his chopper was shot down. He and three crew members were declared missing in action.

This memorial plaque is dedicated as a
tribute to those who served and fought
in the Vietnam War, especially those
who died, and those yet to return.
