Last Known Activity
Barnes, 35, was in the first day of his second tour of Viet Nam when he was killed on June 6, 1967 in Khe Sanh. The Navy equipment operator had written his family that he was looking forward to getting "into the field" with his unit, Naval Mobile Construction Battalion Eleven. The 15- year Navy veteran had been tagged as a future teacher in the 1949 John Bartram High School yearbook, and indeed he worked as an instructor in Mobile Construction Battalion 6, a successor unit to the old Navy Seabees of World War II. He was survived by his wife, two sons, three daughters, parents, two brothers and two sisters.
