Lt. Barton was an A4 Skyhawk pilot with VA44.

As a Plane Captain (PC) in VA-44 in 1965 and 1966, I was Lt. Barton's PC on several occasions. As PC, I inspected his aircraft with him and launched him on his flights. Lt. Barton was known to performed a thorough inspection of his A4 and required his PC to have everything in order. When I heard of his death from a squadron mate I was very shocked and sad to lose someone I had worked with.
Later as I became a pilot, I would often remember Lt. Barton during my own preflight inspections. I guess as long as I'm around aircraft I will remember Lt. Barton. RIP shipmate.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear LT Dennis Michael Barton, 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 LT Dennis Michael BARTON, USN...who made the ultimate sacrifice!!

If I should die, asnd leave you here awhile, be not like others, sore undone, who keep long vigils by the silent dust, and weep...for MY sake, 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.
