    You stand very tall in the annals of remembering. In the Movie "Taking Chance " The Gunny tells Col. Strobl " You are his witness now. Without a witness, they just disappear. Robert S. Byrnes will never disappear. I have searched out Robert S. Byrnes name. he feels like a brother I never met. I stand here alone offering a slow salute in his honor. I honor you as well for making me part of this great "family." (US ARMY 1970-72)
