Possibly the first War Hero any of us knew. Died in Viet Nam. I don't know the date, but I believe it was shortly after High School.

To my childhood friend, Aycock school buddy and fellow Vietnam Veteran. Terry and I had some fun times in those early years. He was a great friend to me following the sudden death of my mother. We lost track of each other when I moved away. Years later I learned that our tours in Vietnam had overlapped and that Terry had made the ultimate sacrifice. I was sad but not the least bit surprised. I kinda knew what he was made of. Strong. Good stuff.
Terry, May you forever be surrounded by peace.

Such a sweet person, Terry, and so hard to think of his passing that young, that soon in war.

Terry is buried in the Military Section of Forest Lawn Cemetery in Greensboro.  I can show anyone who would like to pay their respects. Terry and I were friends at Aycock and again when his family moved to Friendly Ave and he transferred to Grimsley.  Years later I became friends with Terry's Dad, Ed Bryson.  Ed actually offered me Terry's boots which he had bronzed.  I have a photo of Terry taken when he was in Vietnam that Ed gave me.  I will try to get it scanned and post it for everyone.

The above photo of Terry Bryson was submitted by Melanie Wells, a guest classmate.  It was taken in Army basic training sometime prior to Terry's deployment to Vietnam in November of 1969.  Terry lost his life there in February of 1970.

Thank you, Sharon.  The photo looks great ... so much larger than the origiinal.  Is there a way to add the year that Terry died to the In Memory list?

Here it is Memorial Day 2020 and remembering classmates who served as I did in Vietnam and paid the ultimate price for our freedom.  Below is the link to Terry's profile on the digital memorial wall.
