US Army Served in Vietnam


  1. I served with Byron in Vietnam.
    We almost went into business together after Vietnam but I decided to stay in Texas.
    Byron was a great guy and I think about him a lot....

  2. I served in Vietnam with Byron and can say he was truly a very good friend. We were together most of our time in Vietnam. we got separated temporarily for couple of days at which time I was wounded and after many months in the hospital was ent back home.
    I visited Byron only a couple of times after we both got out of the service and this I do regret...

    I would really likje to hear from anyone who knew Byron as I miss him more than ever..

  3. I was childhood friends with his sister Jeanette and spent many days and nights playing at their house in Willard. Byron was always pretty quiet but always very nice. Not like a lot of other friends brothers. Their mom would make us the best pancakes for breakfast. Now all three are gone but all wonderful people. They are missed.

  4. Copied from BEHS 1969 class Facebook Page:

    Mike Crossley:
    "I grew up with Byron! we had a lot of fun. After we graduated Byron went in the service and we lost touch. There was always Byron, Steve Greer, Terry Fowles and Myself chasing in Willard. It's sad to see close friends passing on, I give my love and best wishes to his wife and children. Byron was a dear friend and I will miss him too"
