One of his most memorable times was his service on the USS Lexington when in early May 1942, the USS Lexington returned to the South Pacific in time to join USS Yorktown in successfully countering the Japanese offensive in the Coral Sea. May 8, 1942, the USS Lexington's planes helped sink the Japanese aircraft carrier Shoho and participated in attacks on the carriers Shokaku and Zuikaku. The USS Lexington received two torpedo and three bomb hits and was abandoned by her crew. She was the first U.S. aircraft carrier to be lost in World War II. Barney served in Germany after the war and also has seen duty at the North Pole and the South Pole. He holds the Good Conduct, American Defense, American Campaign, United Nations Service, World War II, Asiatic-Pacific, European Occupation, Korean and China service medals. He retired from the Navy after 21 years of service. After retirement Barney helped build the Midtown Tunnel and the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel, and then worked as a Rigger in the Newport News Shipyard until he retired. - See more at: hollomon-brown.com
