Solution? Battery is not keeping a charge.

I got some regular maintenance done the 12th. I picked my truck up on the 13th and have been having issues since. The battery is not keeping a charge. I took my truck to Walmart to have them charge the battery back to full charge on the 13th and then on the 14th and both times when I re-hooked the battery back up the light registered that it wasn't fully charged. The battery is indicating that it is a good battery. O'Reilly diagnostic the battery and informed me that the volt regulator was bad; they suggested a new alternator. I bought one and hooked that up and still had the same issue. Went back had the alternator tested and it showed it was good. They warrantied out a new alternator and on the way home from O'Reilly's everything on my truck's dash went down and I can't start the truck at all. Suggestions PLEASE

    the battery undoubtedly is destroyed. swap it with a new one before considering further. voltage reg may have been original cause but would have ended the battery.
