HARVEY C. BARNUM, JR. ALS: "H C Barnum Jr/Colonel of Marines (Ret)", 1½p, 8½x11. No place, no date, no salutation. Penned in lower portion and on verso of an undated TLS to him asking for his most vivid combat situation. In part: "The action for which I received the medal of Honor. The entire action proved what Marines are all about...when I assumed command. It was like I had been assigned to and trained with that company for years. Because I was in command, they did what I did, when and how I told them to do it...." From his citation for his actions in the Vietnam War, Ky Phu in Quang Tin Province, December 18, 1965: "[Then Lieutenant Barnum] with complete disregard for his safety, gave aid to the dying commander, then removed the radio from the dead operator and strapped it to himself. He immediately assumed command of the rifle company, and moving at once into the midst of the heavy fire, rallying and giving encouragement to all units...." Folds, not at signature.
