My thought and prayers go out to Barry’s family. I served with Barry in the National Guard. Two things were a guarentee with Barry: A. you had the best .50 cals in the Battalion and B. he would always put a smile on your face. Barry was a terrific infantryman and person. I am blessed to have been a Soldier alongside him.
