Remembering a Buddy

In 1965 Jamie & I were freshmen at the University of Florida, and both members of the Army ROTC Precision Drill Team, the Gator Guard. Spending the extra hours necessary to be a part of that special unit together, quickly turned us into ”Good Buddies”. I have so many memories of him, but honestly, most of those memories are just mine, somewhat un-extraordinary, and maybe not worth the space in cyberspace to share. What I will share is Jamie's “love of country” and commitment to serve. That wasn't especially easy back then, but there was no doubt in Jamie's resolve.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear 1LT Robert Jameson 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

I was with Robert (Jamie) Barton at the University of Florida

I was Jamie's skydiving instructor. We had a lot of fun at the U of F and other Drop Zones in Florida. When he about to ship out to Vietnam he stopped by and wanted to make a jump with me. He ended up letting me jump his Para Commander parachute and he jumped my "cheap Po" modified military rig.
I am sure that was the last sky dive he ever made. We had a great time.

More than forty years have passed

Jamie and I were members of the University of Florida Parachuting Club in the mid 1960s. I enlisted in the Air Force and he became a helicopter pilot in the Army. His life ended far too short. His irrepressible grin is hard to forget. What's hard to conceive is that more than four decades have passed since his untimely death. He is still missed.
