Final Mission of SP4 Barney J. White
Posted on 7/15/17 - by wkillian@smjuhsd.org
 
On November 4, 1968, D Troop, the Air Cavalry troop of the 3rd Squadron, 4th Cavalry, encountered difficulty at 1835 hours when it landed its Aerorifles Platoon to check out a suspected enemy position one mile west of the Route 1 village of Bau Dieu in Hau Nghia Province, RVN. As the helicopters touched down, they came under heavy small arms fire which resulted in four cavalrymen killed. They included aero-riflemen PFC John M. Filippelli and SP4 Barney J. White, helicopter door gunner SP4 Gregory L. Phillips, and combat engineer SP4 Richard A. Setter. Another 12 were wounded. Two UH-1D helicopters were shot down and destroyed, and two others were damaged. Enemy losses in the fierce fight could not be determined. Filippelli was posthumously promoted to corporal.

Remembering An American Hero
Posted on 10/23/13 - by Curt Carter ccarter02@earthlink.net

Dear SP4 Barney Joe White, sirAs an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for your sacrifice made on behalf of our wonderful country. The youth of today could gain much by learning of heroes such as yourself, men and women whose courage and heart can never be questioned.
May God allow you to read this, and may He allow me to someday shake your hand when I get to Heaven to personally thank you. May he also allow my father to find you and shake your hand now to say thank you; for America, and for those who love you.
With respect, and the best salute a civilian can muster for you, SirCurt
