I was under his command, at Cu Chi
1849, SE., Pitts Drive, Bend, OR., 97702, USA
Superb Leader
I was part, of a special detail commanded, by Lt., John Barovetto, when he, was attached, to the 3/4, Cav., at Cu Chi. Please visit, www.virtualwall.org/db/BarovettoJL01.htm, for that story. He is, also mentioned in a book, by Charles A Krohn, titled, The Lost Battalion, of TET.. Should his family ever read, these comments, John was the most influential, officer, I ever, served under. His leadership skills, were CEO., quality and I used, what I learned from him, throughout, my professional career. I think, of him often. I have added his story, to my Vietnam, Folder, so my children, will always remember, him and his positive influence, on me.

IF ANY ONE KNEW MY DAD PLEASE EMAIL TOOK 30 YEARS FOR THE WAR TO KILL HIM AND HE IS NOW WITH JOHN IN HEAVEN. GOD BLESS YOU ALL

In His Honor
In 1981, I was awarded the John Barovetto Memorial Award at Davis Sr. High School. This award was given to a student-athlete who met the criteria set forth by his family for athletics, grades, community service, etc. I was the only recipient to have the honor of being presented the award, personally, by his mother. It was an honor to win the award. Recently, I had the honor of seeing the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall. I took his name home with me and placed it with the award that my mother still has proudly displayed. 25 years later, it is even more of an honor now that I am old enough to appreciate and understand the commitment and sacrifice Capt. Barovetto made. Thank you sir.

Hello and blessings to all, I am Johnny's kid sister, Patsy Barovetto. I stumbled upon this wonderful wall of remembrance and have heartfelt tears reading all the precious words of memory of my big brother John. I am heartened to know he was loved and supported by such wonderful people, who themselves were brave and courageous. Thank you all for your eyes and ears to add to my wonderful memories of my brother. Blessings to you and all our families.

My late Dad served with Capt Barovetto and shared with me he was a soldier's soldier. While I was overseas myself my Dad wrote me many letters in which I wish I had kept to this day but that was 30 plus years ago. My Dad did recommend a Hall at Ft. Knox, be named after Capt Barovetto. General Tate was the Base Commander at Ft. Knox at that time. I am now in possession of the print My Dad received of the Vietnam memorial and it is signed by Capt. Barovetto's Daughter stating her father always spoke highly of his troops. 1996 Agent Orange ate up my Dad to nothing and 3 yrs later shot himself. I understand and can understand now. I am 100% service connected with a above knee amputation.

Remembering An American Hero
Posted on 11/20/13 - by Curt Carter ccarter02@earthlink.net
 
Dear Captain John Lawrence Barovetto, sir As 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, Sir Curt Carter

Posted on 9/10/11
 
If I should die, and leave you here awhile, be not like others, sore undone, who keep long vigils by the silent dust, and weep...for MY sake, turn again to life, and smile...Nerving thy heart, and trembling hand to do something to comfort other hearts than thine...Complete thewse dear, unfinished tasks of mine...and I, perchance, may therein comfort you.

Commander, Bravo Troop 1/1 Cavalry Que Son Valley, attached 2/12 Cavalry
Posted on 6/21/07 - by MAJ Thomas Pike thomas.pike1@us.army.mil
 
Captain Baravetto was an Army captain, killed on 7 January 1968 appx 4 kilometers west of LZ Ross in the Que Son Valley by the village of Xuan Que (5). He was leading a relief to assist A and C Companies 2/12 Cavalry which had been ambushed by the 3rd NVA Regiment, 2nd NVA Division. Trying to bring order to the battlefield, Captain Baravetto was shot and killed by NVA small arms fire. His body was recoved from the field under fire and taken back in an APC when the units withdrew. He was a well liked commander. I would be interested to hear from anyone who knew him.

NATIVE AMERICAN PRAYER
Posted on 7/9/04 - by Chris Spencer cws71354@bellsouth.net
 
It is said a man hasn't died as long as he is remembered. This prayer is a way for families, friends and fellow veterans to remember our fallen brothers and sisters. Do not stand at my grave and weep I am not there, I do not sleep. I am a thousand winds that blow, I am the diamond glints on snow. I am the sunlight on ripened grain, I am the gentle autumn rain. When you awaken in the morning hush, I am the swift, uplifting rush of quiet birds in circled flight, I am the stars that shine at night. Do not stand at my grave and cry, I am not there, I did not die
