N.J. SERGEANT KILLED IN VIETNAM COMBAT ON #D TOUR OF DUTY

Sgt. Richard L. Bariglio, a Burlington County career soldier serving his third tour of duty in Vietnam, was killed in combat, the Defense Department reported. The father of three, he was the holder of a Bronze Star, a Purple Heart with three clusters and many other decorations. He had previously been wounded three times. Sgt. Bariglio, 37, was a platoon sergeant. The Army said he was wounded on a military watercraft during a combat operation. Removed to a military medical center he died a short time later. Sgt. Bariglio would have completed 20 years with the Army next years. His wife, Dorothy and three children lived with the GI's parents, Mr.a nd Mrs. Thomas Bariglio, at 94-A Gatehouse apartments, Edgewater Park. Sgt. Bariglio's father attempted to keep his son from returning to Vietnam because of his medical record. He was returned last January. A native of Philadelphia, he was graduated from St. Thomas More High School in June 1950. He entered the service that September at age 17. Sgt. Bariglio was wounded twice while serving in Korea and was wounded in Vietnam in 1965. Surviving besides his wife and parents are three children, Donna, 9; Thomas, 7; and Marie, 5.

RICHARDBariglio was so eager to serve his country that he got his mother's permission so he could join the Army at age 17. He became a career soldier, earning the rank of sergeant first class by the time he died at age 37 on Nov. 10, 1969, from gunfire while aboard a military watercraft. Bariglio already had served two combat tours in Vietnam and was a Korean War veteran. He was born and raised in Philadelphia and attended St. Thomas More High School. Bariglio dreamed of becoming a recruiter when he retired from active service, according to his wife of 11 years, Dorothy. He was survived by his wife, two daughters, a son, 14 grandchildren and three great grandchildren.
