Boyhood friend & fellow Vietnam VeteranPosted on 11/11/16 - by USMC Nam Vet 1967As boys, Brian was full of energy and always on the go. We had a lot of fun roaming the lakes shore in Hamburg, NY.

Served together!!Posted on 8/19/15 - by Michael Cook email@example.comBrian was the least person we thought we would ever lose in our platoon and company B-2/8th Cheyenne platoon First Cavalry Division (AM), he was everything you would want a squad leader to be plus he had a personality that just drew people to him. I'll never forget the day he died but I will always remember the days he lived among us more.MORE

My name is Michael J Foley and my mother received one or two phone calls offering condolences when Brian was killed in 1971. I did not know him well since the difference in age but a tear erupts whenever I think of the waste America created at that time and how so many of our young who never had a chance to grow old...
Remembering An American HeroPosted on 11/15/13 - by Curt Carter firstname.lastname@example.orgDear SSGT Brian Robert Foley, sirMORE
As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for your sacrifice made on behalf of our wonderful country. The youth of today could gain much by learning of heroes such as yourself, men and women whose courage and heart can never be questioned.
May God allow you to read this, and may He allow me to someday shake your hand when I get to Heaven to personally thank you. May he also allow my father to find you and shake your hand now to say thank you; for America, and for those who love you.
With respect, and the best salute a civilian can muster for you, Sir
