From his nephewPosted on 5/24/15 - by Tim Meece firstname.lastname@example.orgI only remember seeing Elmer once in my life. He stopped at our home in St. Louis on his way to Fort Lenord Wood. I remember him in his uniform eating breakfast with us before I went to school. I have a daughter now that is the age he was then. He was so young. Far too young.MORE
Remembering An American HeroPosted on 12/3/13 - by Curt Carter email@example.comDear SP4 Elmer Edward Barr, sirMORE
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
