 Poem by Captain Michal Davis O'Donnell
 Killed in Action on March 24, 1970
 Republic of Vietnam

 If you are able, 
 Save them a place
 Inside of you.
 And save one backward glance
 When you are leaving
 For the place they can no longer go.
 Be not ashamed to say
 You love them,
 Though you 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 that time
 When men decide and feel safe
 To call the war insane,
 Take one moment to embrace
 Those gentle heroes you left behind.
