My older brother Frankie, Francis Edward Barry had told me a story about a visit to the "Vietnam Veterans National Memorial" in Washington, DC years ago when he spotted Edward Francis Barry's name on the wall. He took a double take and his face was in shock and a bit confused... You see, he read the name wrong, Frankie thought it said "Francis Edward" Barry on the Wall. He did some research and found the name again, this time with a birth date the same as his, in August 1946. Again, another shock. To think this man took a spot on "the wall", after serving his country for my brother and all of us Barry's from the New York, New Jersey and Connecticut area. Thank you Sgt Edward Francis Barry for your ultimate sacrifice for our nation. MSG Dorothy M. Barry, Retired U.S. Army.
