Remembering Barry L. Adam
Hello, my name is Chelsey Shepos and I am in eleventh grade. I am learning about The Vietnam War in a class of mine, The Shaping of the Modern World, and got the opportunity to research some of the men and women involved in this war. I found a connection with you due to our birthdays being on the same day, May 14th. I was inspired by your life. You played a big role in the world and your efforts are appreciated. You stood up for the United States and served your duty well. I want to thank you for the difference you made for all of us. You were a good man

THANKS - WE REMEMBER - September 24, 1988
Father's Day 1967. A tragic day for the parents of Army PFC Barry L. Adam, of Reading. That is the day they received word that their son was missing in South Vietnam. Mother's Day that year was the last time they had spoken to him in person by phone from the West Coast. That was his birthday also, and his mother wished him a happy birthday, and he wished her happy Mother's Day.
Barry was serving in Germany when he volunteered to go to Vietnam because he felt it was his duty. His mother said he was not afraid and believed he owed it to all the others who had gone over.
Born in Reading, Barry attended Reading High and was a member of St. Peter's Methodist Church. He enjoyed baseball and sang with Reading High's a cappella choir. He was a member of Explorer Post No. 46, St. John's United Church of Christ, and the Naval Reserves. He was working at the then Two Guys department store in Cumru Township when he enlisted in the Army.
Barry was killed when the personnel carrier in which he was riding hit a mine. He was awarded the Bronze Star.
Surviving at the time were his mother, father and two sisters.
He was in Vietnam two months, serving with the 25th Infantry Division.
He was 21 years old.
From the Berks County Vietnam Memorial dedication booklet
Barry, Although we never met,I just want you to know you are not forgotten. You gave the ultimate sacrifice, your life for what you believed in. Sleep well my friend, and thank you for protecting the freedoms we have today
