  • Final Mission of LCPL John F. Barnett

    Posted on 11/21/17 - by wkillian@smjuhsd.org
    On July 19, 1970, a U.S. Marine Corps UH-1E (#154773) gunship, TV-21, from Marine Light Attack Helicopter Squadron 167 (HML-167) was one of two gunships flying cover for an APD “People Sniffer” mission (Airborne Personnel Detector) when the aircraft suffered an on-board fire and crashed, killing four crew members. The helicopter went down approximately 20 miles southwest of Da Nang in Quang Nam Province, RVN. The crash site was at about 2600-foot elevation. There was no enemy contact, and the crew from the other gunship agreed that some kind of mechanical problem brought the aircraft down. The lost crewmen included pilot 1LT Richard W. Dodd, co-pilot 1LT Lewis E. Casner Jr., crew chief CPL Johnny M. Rodgers, and gunner LCPL John F. Barnett. [Taken from popasmoke.com]

  • Remembering An American Hero

    Posted on 7/19/13 - by Curt Carter
    Dear LCPL John Frank Barnett, sir

    As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for your sacrifice made on behalf of our wonderful country. The youth of today could gain much by learning of heroes such as yourself, men and women whose courage and heart can never be questioned.

    May God allow you to read this, and may He allow me to someday shake your hand when I get to Heaven to personally thank you. May he also allow my father to find you and shake your hand now to say thank you; for America, and for those who love you.

    With respect, and the best salute a civilian can muster for you, Sir

The Wall of Faces

Brought to you by the organization that built The Wall, the Vietnam Veterans Virtual Memorial Wall is dedicated to honoring, remembering and sharing the legacies of all those who died in the Vietnam War. Here you can go beyond the names on The Wall to see the faces, share the stories and read the remembrances posted by friends, neighbors, classmates and family members.

All of these photos will be showcased in The Education Center at The Wall on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. To learn more about the effort to collect these photos and ensure their faces will never be forgotten, visit www.buildthecenter.org.
