  • Old comrade

    We were newbies together,scared, unsure of ourselves. He was Yonkers, I was jersey we had a lot in common so we buddied up for awhile. We went on to do different jobs. I cannot say I have been quite the same since his death. I wish
    John's family all the peace and serenity possible. He was a good man , the kind of person a family can be proud of.

    I was assigned to the Radar Section of Company E 2/27 Infantry (Wolfhounds) and met John in Feb or Mar 1970 while his squad was pulling overnight security for our Radar site in the village of Binh Than, which was Northwest of Cu Chi, about 3700 meters from the Cambodian Border. We hit it off immediately since I grew up in Dobbs Ferry, we talked a lot about home during our short times together. I lost track of John after his squad moved on and our Radar Section moved to a new location at the end of March. It was only after we returned to Cu Chi that I found out of his death. I am still not able reflect on my time in Viet Nam, without John coming to mind. Rest in Peace Brother.
  • Remembering An American Hero

    Dear SGT John Joseph Lyons, sir

    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

    Curt Carter

All of these photos will be showcased in The Education Center at The Wall on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. To learn more about the effort to collect these photos and ensure their faces will never be forgotten, visit
