For you every single soldier Those who served so honorable Your life was forever altered While I’m home safe and free I stand with grateful admiration I stand respectful and so proud I know I’m only a civilian And I don’t even know if it’s allowed But I salute you allow me the honor to salute you with permission let me say Even though I hold no rank know that from my heart My humble gratitude comes from the deepest part. I salute you. For those missing in action for those who didn’t make it home. I know you’re in God’s presence you are not alone. For every neatly folded flag for every shattered family I will do the only thing I know to dignify your memory. I salute you, allow me the honor to salute you with permission let me say even though I hold no rank know that from my heart my humble gratitude comes from the deepest part. I salute you .

    Thank you, for sacrificing your tomorrows, 1Lt.,Robert (Bob) S. Byrnes. May God bless you and keep you safe, in His arms. Those of us who remember the Vietnam War, are carrying the torch of remembrance for our fallen, our MIA's. and our POW's.. We are forever indebted to you. If I should die, and leave you here awhile, be not like others, sore undone, who keep long vigils by the silent dust and weep... for MY sake, turn again to life and smile... Nerving thy heart and trembling hand to do something, to comfort other hearts, than thine... Complete these dear, unfinished tasks of mine... and I, perchance, may therein comfort you. Leilani Brunson, adgt., Gen., Army, Ret

  • Rest in peace 82nd Arty Hero First Lieutenant Byrnes

    Posted on 9/10/17 - by Horace Verry Advisory Team, Ordnance Officer
    The finest Officer with whom I served with, Lt. Byrnes. Lt. Byrnes was truly an exceptional soldier, with whom I' am very proud, to have served. He was extremely knowledgeable and took necessary action, without waiting to be told. We often conversed about our problems, without completing a single sentence and arrived, at solutions together. I often include him in memoirs, of my Vietnam experiences. Lt. Byrnes I will always remember you, your love of family, humor and devotion, to our country.

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.
