  • Final Mission of SP5 Ray M. Barnwell

    Posted on 1/31/16 - by wkillian@smjuhsd.org
    On March 5, 1966, a U.S. Army helicopter UH-1D (tail number 63-12995) from B Company, 1st Aviation Battalion, 1st Infantry Division, was on a resupply mission during Operation Cocoa Beach in the vicinity of Lo Ke plantation, about 4 miles north of Lai Khe Airfield. During the mission the aircraft was taken under hostile enemy fire from a 12.7 mm Chinese anti-aircraft weapon causing the helicopter to crash with the loss of all six personnel aboard. The lost crew members included pilot MAJ Lewis D. Bell, co-pilot CAPT Robert M. Caliboso, crew chief SP5 Danny A. Neth, and gunner SP5 Ray M. Barnwell, plus two passengers, CAPT Richard N. Gereau and SFC Gary W. Emmett. [Taken from vhpa.org]

    Dear SP5 Ray Max Barnwell, 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.

    With respect, 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.
