Ground Casualty

On April 13, 1970, A Battery on FSB Bastogne in Thua Thien Province, RVN, received two enemy mortar rounds which impacted in one of the gun pits. One man from Service Battery, SP5 Larry E. Francis, was killed and another, SP4 David A. Barbarino, was critically injured. Three men from A Battery, SP4 Troy V. Canady, SP4 Clifford J. Earnhardt, and SP4 Kenneth L. McCarty, were also killed. Five personnel in the area were wounded. There was no damage to equipment. SP4 Barbarino was medically evacuated after a shard of mortar casing put a hole in his back the size of a baseball and severed his spinal cord. More than a year of operations and recovery in hospitals in Guam and Japan could not restore feeling in or use of his legs. Barbarino vowed upon his return to the United States to walk again and did so by learning to prop himself up with a cane in each arm and fling his lower body forward. Only in his last few years of his life did he use a wheelchair. Barbarino died on November 26, 1991, at the age of 42. His name was added to the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall in 1996.
