Final Mission of CAPT Phillip D. Barger

The celebration of the Marine Corps birthday on November 10, 1968 came to an abrupt end the following day when CAPT Phillip D. Barger was killed in action. While flying his Douglas A-4 Skyhawk on a mission against suspected NVA positions in the foothills northwest of Da Nang, CAPT Barger was making his second run on a target when his plane was hit by ground fire. The pilot never pulled out of the dive and the jet exploded as it collided with the ground. [Taken from archive.org]

Remembering An American Hero

Dear Captain Phillip Dennis Barger, 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

Curt Carter

If I should die...remembrances for CAPT. Phillip Dennis BARGER, USMC...who died for our countrty!!!!

If I should die, and leave you here awhile, be not like others, sore undone, who keep long vigils by the silent dust, and weep...for MY saike, turn again to life, and smile...Nerving thy heart, and trembling hand to do something to comfort other hearts than thine...Complete these dear, unfinished tasks of mine...and I, perchance, may therein comfort you.
