Bryan “Barney” Farah, Veteran
USN – WWII
Green Bay, Wisconsin – 12-08-18
ABOUT THE MISSION:
Bryan (Barney) Abraham Farah left us Friday, November 23rd, 2018 after a brief illness. Barney was born to first generation immigrant Lebanese parents Esber and Sophie Farah on April 20, 1925. At 17 years old, he volunteered to serve his country during WWII. His knowledge and love of science led him to train as a hospital corpsman in both the Navy and the Marines where he served in New Caledonia and the Philippines. He is most proud of his time served, and his ability to make people feel better through medicine and food when he was able to sneak away to the kitchen and whip up special treats such as chocolate ice cream for his comrades and superiors. One of his proudest moments was taking the WWII Glory Honor Flight to Washington, D.C.
