  • Honoring Barry

    Posted on 9/3/17 - by Jan Wieneke
    On 11/7/2017 during the commemoration of the 35th Anniversary of The Wall, I will be reading Barry's name along with my father's and 28 others who were lost far too soon. My dad died the day after Barry and the two of them are forever together on panel 4E just one row apart.

    I would love to hear more about him from anyone who knew him.

    Dear LCPL Barry James Sitler, 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

  • Barry was in my squad the day he was killed.

    I was Barry's squad leader in Fox 2/1 and with him when he died. He has just moved to behind a rice paddy dike right behind our position where we were taking heavy, heavy fire and lot's of casualities. I had asked him to cover our rear and he jumped back there and was doing his job when he was hit and died. I loved Barry like a brother and think of him almost daily - he was my first Marine killed in my squad. I will never forget him. God Bless, Barry Sitler and look over his family in Compton.

    In the photo above (Feb 1966), I'm on the left - Sgt. Dave Goodwin, Barry's team leader is on the right. Dave lives in Arizona today. I was wounded and evacuated on 28 Feb 1966, my first of three wounds. I retired in 1979.
