Welcome to The Cat House

In Memoriam

wallNo man is dead, until he is forgotten

WE SHALL NEVER FORGET THESE BROTHERS

(There are two Sisters listed here, Momma Black Cat, Founder of the Black Cat Association, Coleen Riley Pullen and Donna Elliott)

There is no right, no wrong... No truth nor falsehood, no good nor evil. There is only responsibility and commitment.

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 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.

Major Michael Davis O'Donnell 1 January 1970 Dak To, Vietnam, Listed as KIA February 7, 1978

THEY STILL FLY THE SKIES OF VIETNAM
