Godspeed Captain...you will be missed!!



If you are able,
save 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 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

Farewell, Captain Jensen. It was my great honor to have known, had an invaluable exchange with, and befriended You on this forum and beyond, in spite of so many differences in our backgrounds.

Rest in peace, my dear friend. I'll always remember you.

Your friend, Trung

Thank you,
The Jensens


It has been a most sorrowful day in the world, not just here, when the life of such a fine & upstanding man as Ken Jensen has passed from among his family, very real friends and all now left behind as those that Love and have Loved him...

May God Bless, Comfort And Hold All He Loved And That Love Him Gently.

Fair Winds & Following Seas Home, Our Friend!


Not Goodbye, Ken, But Until We Meet Again!

Ken, you will be remembered as a proud patriot who gave more than than anyone would have expected for your country and the freedom of the Vietnamese people. Rest in peace my friend.
