I Remember

I met Sp5 Roland Barnaby in June 1968 at Ft. Benning. He was enroute to an assignment in RVN.I was a 2LT at the Special Processing Detachment. Roland had a great personality and infectuous smile. He was with us for only a few days when he finally made his way to the port of embarkation.
I was very sad to learn of his passing. I fondly remember Roland to this day.

Final Mission of SP5 Roland N. Barnaby

SP5 Roland N. Barnaby was a field radio repairer serving with the Phu Lam Signal Battalion, U.S. Army Strategic Communications Command (USASTRATCOM), 1st Signal Brigade. SP5 Barnaby was assigned to the radio frequency (RF) section of the carrier equipment repair unit as a field repair specialist. Barnaby's job was maintaining the telephone ringer equipment, PRC-10 and PRC-25 combat field radios, as well as VHF transmitters. Late in the afternoon of July 12, 1968, Barnaby and three other enlisted men (EM) were sent in a ¾-ton military truck to Tan Son Nhut Air Base to pick up some equipment that had been dropped off for Phu Lam and to deliver some field wire to the communications unit there. Barnaby and his fellow EMs were armed and the vehicle carried a M60 machine gun. Barnaby and another EM were riding in the back of the truck when it stopped due to traffic. Barnaby stepped out to stretch, and when he turned around, he was hit by sniper fire. The round struck him in the stomach about four inches below the sternum. The wound began bleeding profusely. They were only a short distance from the 3rd Field Hospital, and after loading Barnaby into the truck, they forced their way through traffic. One of the EMs applied pressure to the open wound until they arrived at the Field Hospital. Barnaby succumbed to his wound shortly thereafter. [Taken from coffeltdatabase.org and phulam.com]
