Silver Star Citation

Glendon Roman Barnett

DATE OF BIRTH: March 19, 1944
PLACE OF BIRTH:
Barre, Vermont
HOME OF RECORD:
Jaffrey, New Hampshire

Silver Star
AWARDED FOR ACTIONS
DURING Vietnam War
Service: Army
Rank: Specialist Fourth Class
Battalion: 1st Battalion
Division: 1st Infantry Division
GENERAL ORDERS:
Headquarters, 1st Infantry Division, General Orders No. 5346 (July 27, 1967)
CITATION:
The President of the United States of America, authorized by Act of Congress July 9, 1918 (amended by an act of July 25, 1963), takes pride in presenting the Silver Star (Posthumously) to Specialist Fourth Class Glendon Roman Barnett (ASN: RA-11462303), United States Army, for gallantry in action against a hostile force while serving with Company B, 1st Battalion, 16th Infantry Regiment, 1st Infantry Division, in the Republic of Vietnam on 14 June 1967. On this date during Operation BILLINGS, Specialist Barnett was serving s the platoon leader's radio-telephone operator while on a search and destroy mission. While moving through an area of dense jungle near Chu Linh, they were violently attacked by a large hostile force. The friendly unit quickly formed a perimeter and began to return fire. Specialist Barnett realized that three men were missing and, with complete disregard for his personal safety, he moved to the area of initial contact to try to locate them. He maintained his search, despite intense volley's of insurgent fire directed at him, until he found the missing soldiers. He then led the soldiers back through the vicious enemy fire to the perimeter. Once there, he saw that his platoon leader was temporarily blind and deaf from a hostile grenade explosion. Specialist Barnett led the wounded officer to a position of relative safety and then continued to transmit situation reports to his company commander, and adjust air strikes and artillery fire for his platoon. As the battle increased in intensity, Specialist Barnett covered his radio with his body to protect it from hostile fire, realizing it was the only communications link with other friendly units. Later in the battle, Specialist Barnett saw three insurgents approach his platoon leader's position. He quickly shouted to attract their attention and then took them under fire. He succeeded in killing three Viet Cong before he was mortally wounded by hostile fire. His great courage and decisive actions under fire undoubtedly saved the life of his platoon leader and contributed immeasurably to the overwhelming rout of the enemy force. Specialist Fourth Class Barnett's unquestionable valor in close combat against numerically superior hostile forces is in keeping with the highest traditions of the military service and reflect great credit upon himself, the 1st Infantry Division, and the United States Army.
