Death: Mar. 19, 1967
Bin Thang, Vietnam

Son of Mary Albro and Eugene Delphin. Graduated U.S. Naval Academy, 4 mos. in Vietnam, flying F100s, shot down. Widow: Phyllis Douglas of Dunedin, FL, daughter Kletia, son Casey. Graduate of Clearwater High School, Class President 1958. Graduate of Naval Academy, Annapolis Class of 1962. See memorial on the Virtual Wall at www.vvmf.org

From the Class of 1962 Annapolis Yearbook

Barry Ronal Delphin Clearwater, Florida When Barry Ronal Delphin bade farewell to Cono, the Naval Academy inherited the Caesar of Clearwater. Though short in height and shorter on hair, Barry's homing disserta- tions on all subjects indicated his presence in any crowd. Aside from his eloquence, Barry's quick eyes, faster hands and hard spike made him a natural on the handball, tennis, and volleyball courts. After graduation Barry will again be heading South to Southern belles and Naval Aviation. The Academy's loss will be Navy Air's gain.

Captain Delphin was conducting a close air support mission near Lai Khe, north of Saigon, in an F-100D (tail number 55-2912). CAS missions require very low altitudes and yet fairly high speeds. This combination of factors came into play when Captain Delphin's aircraft was struck by automatic weapons fire and crashed before he could eject.

Today we remember not only those who died while serving, but ALL families who served and sacrificed.
