    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. I will always remember you, your love of family, humor and devotion, to our country

    Unselfishly, Bob you left, your father and your mother, You left behind your brother and new wife, Leaving your beloved, You put on hold your dreams, your lives. On foreign soil, you found yourself planted, To fight for those whose freedom, you granted. Without your sacrifice, their cause would be lost, But you carried onward, no matter the cost. Many horrors, you had endured and seen. Many faces had haunted, your dreams. You cheered as your enemies, littered the ground. You cried as your brothers, fell all around. When it was over, you all came back home, Some were left with memories, to face all alone. Some found themselves in the company of friends, As their crosses cast shadows, across the land. Those who survived, were forever scarred Emotionally, physically, permanently marred. Those who did not, now sleep eternally Beneath the ground, they had given their lives, to keep us free. With a hand upon my heart, I feel The pride and respect, my reverence is revealed In the tears that now stream down my upturned face, As our flag waves above you, in her glory and grace. Freedom was the gift, that you unselfishly gave, Pain and death was the price, that you ultimately paid. Every day, I give my utmost admiration, To those who had fought to defend, our nation

    Carmichael, Ca., BOB, NOW SLEEP, Peace has come. Now you can truly sleep, my son. The muddy field where you were laid, Flag-draped, will now be green. Redbud and cherry blossoms, can be seen Soon in bloom, above your head. Arlington's, Eternal Flame, Flickers, across granite rows, To illuminate your name And then beneath it, (with lightning's calm) Strikes in black the word VIETNAM: A CARMICHAEL HERO AND SON, On your own stone. Peace has come. Your medals may turn green In time, like your beret, But forever there are those who'll say, "I live because he cared he came!" February 9, 1968-2018, 50, years, Lt., Robert Scott Byrnes, Rest In Peace
