Owen  McNamara
He was my platoon leader
74 Belgian Way Fitchburg MA 01453 USA
Quintessential platoon leader
Hello Phil, I never got to say goodbye. I was in Aussie on R&R and returned to the field perimeter (CP) and learned that you paid the ultimate sacrifice. I was heartbroken since I thought so much of you. You coached me through my cherry period in Nam as my first platoon leader. That was the Thanksgiving and Christmas seasons and a difficult transition period. You showed me compassion as a new guy in that perdicament and it was tremendously appreciated. Furthermore, I knew you had come back to the field as a result of insufficient qualified officers in the rear. I believe you were XO and came back out to relace LT Weaver after the big boobytrap explosion. Only to have your life taken in a command detonated one. I'm so sorry to not have been their for you as you were for me. You are, as are many, always in my thoughts and prayers. I so proud to have served with true American heroes. I love you and it was an honor to serve with you. Sgt. Owen McNamara

I never met this man but I was in country also at the time of his death. Just had to leave a note to recognize his sacrifice when I saw no one else had. Thank you, Sir.
