Just got an email from a friend sharing the passing of Mr. Barfoot. I remember the story concerning the flag and I am so proud of him standing his ground. Wish I could have known him, I would have stood by him. God bless his family and friends...GOD BLESS AMERICA!!!

i had to honor to be Col Barfoot's escort during the Medal of Honor Convention in charleston, sc a few years ago. His family and himself were very nice and so easy to get along with. Truly an amazing hero. Hope to see you again in heaven one day. SrA Felicia Merchant USAF. (Charleston, SC)
