Carlton W. Barrett: a private in the Army was one of the many men you fought on the beaches of Normandy on D-Day. After making his way to the beaches, under fire the whole time from Nazi’s troops. He then turned back and headed back out towards the open water again, to save his fellow men that were drowning. The water was neck deep and many soldiers were wearing packs that way over 50 pounds and he carried them while swimming to safety on shore and to an evacuation boat.

 

While the exact number of men he saved is not known but his effect on is undeniable. All the times he went back out to rescue more men German soldiers were firing upon him. For his actions he received a Congressional Medal of Honor.

 

As American we hear about D-Day everywhere from our history classes to the movie Saving Private Ryan it and we are reminded of it every June 6th.  We have heard that 1000’s of U.S. soldiers died. The circumstances were terrifying and extraordinary to say the least, with lots of U.S. soldiers being pretty much sitting ducks once they got out of the boats.

 

What Carlton Barrett did was truly heroic. To go back out into the water were many men were drowning because of the surf and weight of their packs. Oh yeah, and throw in the fact beaches and water was being pelted with German bullets from the cliffs above.

 

While this is the not the only requirement to being a hero, when you put others lives before yours the pretty much shoot you straight to the top of the hero list, if you ask me. Selflessness is quality that every Hero (non-super hero) usually has. Private Barrett was not content with just his own safety when he got to the beaches. Most during D-Day just worried about their own safety and got themselves to the beach (once).

 

And to think that there are other stories similar to Private Barrett’s is amazing and truly heroic.

    This story is pretty amazing. I think that Barrett is truly a hero for going back into a war zone to save his fellow soldiers. I think this quality is instilled in most soldiers because they are taught to be a team and to leave no man behind. It’s amazing to read about it and know that they truly act this way.

    I think this is interesting, especially since we are watching Saving Private Ryan tomorrow. I can’t imagine what it must of been like on the beaches of Normandy charging into a sea of machine gun fire.
