LCPL Byrd

Tags: HeroStories

My hero is John T. Byrd.  I never knew him.  I’ve heard he was a great man.  He is from my own small county.  And I can say he is, always will be, even still in heaven, he is a “Jarhead”.  I can only say that because I am an ARMY SSG.  You really don’t understand, until your half way across post, the cannon goes off, you stand and salute to area of the flag, and your eyes to swell up with tears.

God bless the LCPL and his family.
