Gary was a fine person and liked by the men he commanded

I was just 15 yards from Gary the day he was killed by a 60mm mortar round. He had severe chest wounds and was still alive when the chaplain Burton knelt and prayed for him. The Dust Off took him to the hospital but he died in route.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear SSGT Gary Dean Byrd, sir

As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for your sacrifice made on behalf of our wonderful country. The youth of today could gain much by learning of heroes such as yourself, men and women whose courage and heart can never be questioned.

May God allow you to read this, and may He allow me to someday shake your hand when I get to Heaven to personally thank you. May he also allow my father to find you and shake your hand now to say thank you; for America, and for those who love you.

With respect, and the best salute a civilian can muster for you, Sir

Curt Carter
