    1Lt. Byrnes, Sir, I did not know you but I admire your courage and bravery to protect our Country. As a Gold Star Sister of Marine L CPL Nathaniel 'Nate' Schultz who was Killed In Action during OEF Afghanistan on August 21, 2010. I want your family to know I remember you. I think of. You are not forgotten. Thank you for protecting the Red, White & Blue. I remember you. Not just on Veterans Day or Memorial Day but everyday.

    So sorry for you loss. 1LT. Byrnes looks like a kind man. I was there in 68 and am much, much older now and when I see these pictures and read a little about 1LT.Byrnes life and how young we were sometimes it make me cry.

The Wall of Faces

Brought to you by the organization that built The Wall, the Vietnam Veterans Virtual Memorial Wall is dedicated to honoring, remembering and sharing the legacies of all those who died in the Vietnam War.

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
