Pvt Charles Yi Barnett
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Apr. 21, 1989
Death: Nov. 20, 2008, Iraq

Pvt. Charles Yi Barnett of Bel Air, Maryland was from a family whose service to the the country was a family heritage. His father was an Army staff sergeant, as was his grandfather whom Charles was named after. His brother Jason is in the Air Force, stationed at F.E. Warren Air Force Base in Wyoming. His mother was from Seoul and his parents met when his father was stationed in South Korea. And Charles wanted to help those who couldn't help themselves especially since he came from a long line of military servicemen. So he enlisted in the United States Army, just as his father and grandfather had. He was the kind of son that any father could be proud of and was a caring son and brother who had many friends, especially in Sykesville, Maryland where he was raised by his mother and spent most of his life. Charles was also a talented artist who loved to draw, including comic book-type characters and superheroes, as well as self-portraits and abstract portraits of friends, although he had no formal training. He also loved to play video games. In Iraq, among other duties, he was assigned to clear roads of mines and other explosive devices so fellow troops and Iraqi civilians had safe passage. Charles died at age 19 of injuries sustained from a non-combat related incident in Tallil, Iraq.
