PFC Barrett Healing From Injuries
November 3, 2011
Two grenades came over a wall during an attack and Nick was hit by shrapnel in his arm, leg and all along his side. While severely injured he had to walk half a mile back to camp.
He is recovering in Afghanistan and will be returning to duty.
Nick is the son of Brent Barrett of Murfreesboro and Theresa Carter of Christiana. Grandparents are Judy Loy of Woodbury and James H. Barrett or Woodbury. Great Grandparents Darla and Harry Smith and the late Hershel and Mattie Jane Tenpenny.
Nick had only been in Afghanistan about four weeks when he received his injuries, and has just learned that his nine months deployment will be extended to 12 months.
