    Although I was in the Marine Corps and not the Army and I didn't know you, I just want to thank you. Had it not been for good officers who were willing to give all, many of us enlisted men would never have seen home again. Thank you from the depths of my soul.

  • In Humble Tribute To A Fallen Hero

    Posted on 7/4/17 - by Garnet  Jenkins
    Dropping by again, in Remembrance of your Sacrifice for our Country and with a Multitude of Thanks for your Courage, Service and Dedication. Rest in Peace, 1LT Robert Bob S. Byrnes and know that you will NEVER BE FORGOTTEN. 'AND GOD SHALL WIPE AWAY EVERY TEAR FROM THEIR EYES, THERE SHALL BE NO MORE DEATH, NOR SORROW, NOR CRYING, THERE SHALL BE NO MORE PAIN. FOR THE FORMER THINGS HAVE PASSED AWAY.' ~ Revelations 21:4 ~

    Don't grieve for me, for now I'm free,
    I'm following the path God laid for me.
    I took his hand when I heard Him call,
    I turned my back and left it all.
    I could not stay that day,
    to laugh, to love, to work or play.
    Task undone must stay that way.
    I found peace at the close of the day.
    If my parting left a void,
    then fill it with remembered joy.
    A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss
    Ah, these things I too will miss.
    Be not burdened with time of sorrow,
    I wish for you the sunshine of tomorrow.
    My life's been full, I savored much
    Good friends, good times, a loved one touched.
    Perhaps my time seemed all to brief,
    But don't lengthen it now with undue grief.
    Lift up your hearts and share with me.
    God wanted me now, He set me free!

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. Here you can go beyond the names on The Wall to see the faces, share the stories and read the remembrances posted by friends, neighbors, classmates and family members.

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
