“Though I didn't know him personally, I've been told of his unyielding dedication and service to his country,” said Col. Thomas Drew, 86th IBCT dep. cmdr. “He'll be sorely missed.”
“The dedication of this building is another way to retain Barrett’s memory,” said Lt. Col. James Hally, 1-101st FA cmdr. “This dedication and other acts will spread the word and memory of him as a Soldier and person.”The 1-101st FA, out of Massachusetts, is part of the Vermont-based 86th IBCT. Barrett’s picture is slated to be put in the Hall of Heroes at the Vermont NG HQ in Colchester, Vt.
