    One human being, unknown potential, cut short due to war that to this day didn't teach us much. RIP 1LT Robert Byrnes

    I still remember our conversation as we walked to the library when we both attended American River JR. College. You said you were taking a time out to join the Army and you would return back to Carmichael. God had different plans for you. You are truly a hero. What a crush I had on you! We all had such good times and good conversations and I will never forget you.

    Growing up in the military did not allow me the opportunity to live in a single community and gain memories like yours. But it did fill my life with so many people who remind me of your brother, 1Lt Robert Byrnes. Everyday I pray for Robert and your family, as I pray for all who have served and sacrificed. Thank You!

    The finest Officer with whom I served with Lt Byrnes
    Bob 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.

    You died a true hero,

    and that fact is not just seen through my eyes,

    because all of your friends and family knew the real you,

    but I guess this should come as no surprise.

    Because you touched everyone that you met,

    and you did it in some unforgettable way,

    and these words are to honour you,

    but they still leave so much to say.

    Because you truly are my hero,

    you paid the ultimate sacrifice,

    I know you loved your country,

    and I know you knew the price.
