1st Lt. Christopher W. Barnett Obituary

Christopher W. Barnett loved the troops he commanded and planned to join an active duty unit after finishing his tour in Iraq as a National Guardsman. "He loved his troops," said his brother, Jim Barnett. "He lived by duty, honor, bravery and sacrifice." Barnett, 32, of Baton Rouge, La., was killed in Iraq on Dec. 23 by a roadside bomb. His unit was based in Shreveport, La. Barnett's family had moved to Jacksonville, Fla., when he was in high school, but he returned to attend Louisiana State University. He was a Web site designer and worked for a company in Baton Rouge. Jim Barnett said his brother had a great sense of humor: "He's about the funniest person I've known in my life," he said. Barnett is also survived by his wife, Amanda.
