Join us for this very special meeting as we learn the story of Captain Robert Barnett from his daughter, TFRW member Debra Coffey.  Social time and refreshments at 6:30 pm, meeting at 7:00 pm.


"Home at Last"-the Repatriation of Captain Robert Russell Barnett, USAF, MIA/KIA-April 7, 1966, Returned April 7, 2017

Debra Coffey was 9 years old when her father was shot down over Laos.  He was declared KIA/MIA.  He was repatriated 51 years to the day his B57 was shot down, after taking hostile ground fire.  Debra explains the span of 40 years of not knowing or having any information about her father, then his crash site is identified, followed by the years of attempts to recover and identify her father.  In December 2016, she gets that long awaited call that they have identified her father and are bringing this American hero home.....at last. This is a meeting you don't want to miss!
