PFC Joseph Dwyer passed away recently. If the name means nothing, the picture might – remember this one?

He enlisted in the Army on 9/13/2001, and was in the 3rd Inf Div during the early days of the war. The wounds he received there, while never visible, resulted in his death on June 28, at the age of 31. It was a sad end for a brave man.

“He loved the picture, don’t get me wrong, but he just couldn’t get over the war,” his mother, Maureen Dwyer, said by telephone from her home in Sunset Beach, N.C. “He wasn’t Joseph anymore. Joseph never came home.”

Godspeed, PFC Dwyer. I hope that you have found peace at last.
