Regarding Kevin John Joyce
My father, Kevin John Joyce, served
in NAM from May 1968 to July 1968.
He lost both his legs in July, 1968
and ultimately gave his life in 1996.
He was in A CO, 2ND BN, 7TH

Do you have any idea how I can find
out what platoon he was in to see if I
can reach out to any brother
troopers he served with?

I am trying to put together a
memorial video for his grand kids
that he never got to meet.
Any information would be greatly

Kevin John Joyce


It has been many  years since we shared a
moment in time together
In a faraway place in a land like no other
When before the early light
Bombs went off and hell erupted on earth
On a base called J deep in the jungle we
fought for life
I died that night in the fire fight
Only to return and live again
As the Great Spirit did oh so long ago
There were others of our kind our brothers
we left interred
Not forgotten silent in their repose
Within us an empty place that cannot be
filled grows
To you all I say with the most profound
So proud to know you all then and now
As my brothers for life and all time
Bound by duty and honor are the reasons
for our kind
May your Easter meet you with peace and
As you go through this day
Take the time to remember and give
thanks we walked away
From the ashes and grief we share
On this Easter day

LT Smith."

Note: However,
Tom isn't 100%
sure that "SMITH"
is this Trooper's
correct last name!

So, if you can help
confirm this
trooper's identify
