The Citadel, Hotel Company

Barry was my squad corporal my freshman year at The Citadel. He became a friend at the end of the plebe year. He was a gracious gentleman who took me to Lake Marion to teach me how to water ski. Barry was also concerned that I had a relationship with the Lord, and we remained good friends until he graduated in 1968. I was crushed to hear that he was killed in Vietnam. I don't think I knew this until I returned from Vietnam myself.

44 Years Ago Today

Barry, thank you for your service to our country. I miss you. Thank you for padding on your love of country, the Air Force and The Citadel to me. I am reminded of you each day as I see the print of your aircraft on the wall of my office. You will not be forgotten!

Never forgotten

May 11, 2016. I just watched a 60 Minutes story about our nation's Gold Star Moms. A common theme was the hope that the fallen sons and daughters, fathers and mothers would never be forgotten. It reminded me of Barry. I think of him and say a prayer for him and his family each and every Veterans' Day (since 1972). I swore that I would never forget Barry and I want Susan and his daughters to know that. Barry gave me my orientation flight on my first mission in Vietnam in early January 1972. He told me he chose to become an instructor as he had a wife and two children at home that he desperately wanted to return to. He was a great guy, more reserved than most, and a good friend. I have a couple of pictures I would love to share with his daughters. He is not forgotten. His spirit lives on in many of us.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear Captain Barry Kenneth Allmond, 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, Sir

Curt Carter

Final Mission of CAPT Barry K. Allmond

CAPT Barry K. Allmond was a Sundog Forward Air Controller assigned to the 21st Tactical Air Support Squadron at Tan Son Nhut Airport at Saigon. On May 11, 1972, he was flying a Cessna O-2 Skymaster (# 68-11000) when he was hit in Binh Long Province, South Vietnam. CAPT Allmond was one of several FACs controlling air strikes in defense of the city of An Loc. An SA-7 SAM may have hit him; many were seen there after the 11th. CAPT Allmond was a graduate of the Citadel and served 259 days in combat. His body was eventually recovered and his name is located at 01W 023 on the Vietnam Memorial. From Ft. Worth, Texas and 26 years-old, he was married when he was lost. [Taken from fac-assoc.org]
