    My Veteran was in Viet Man and Thailand during his tour of duty. He proudly served his country and was exposed to Agent Orange which is now impacting his life. He is still proud of his time in the service.
  • Robert W Barnett

    Robert W Barnett

    Lieutenant, Navy | 1934-1940/1941-1947 (active duty)
    Minerva, OH
    My grandfather graduated from high school in 1932, during the height of the Great Depression. He enlisted in the United States Navy and was finally able to begin serving in 1934 because of the backlog of American men who looked to the military for steady employment. He returned to civilian life in 1940. Upon hearing of the bombing of Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941, and with his wife seven months pregnant with their first child (my mother), he was standing in line at the recruitment office in Canton, OH first thing on Monday morning December 8, 1941. He explained to his father that he was re-enlisting because his country needed him. By December 13, 1941 he was on a ship carrying ammunition in the Pacific. After separation from the Navy, he continued to serve in the Naval Reserve until he reached retirement age. It is because of the sacrifices of my grandfather and other family members that "I Vote In Honor Of A Veteran".

    I am so proud of my Father who wanted so bad to serve! He wanted to be a pilot but near to the end of WW2 they didnt need as many pilots So he chose to go to St. Lucia as a meteoroligist for the duration of his service. He is 93 and still going to the Ymca to exercise!

    He left home, joined the army and shipped of to Europe to fight in WWI. He had no idea how long he would be gone or if he would ever come home. I am intrigued by his willingness to risk it all.
