Aaron (Sgt Barr) was leaving my apartment in Macon, on Sat. August 21, 2010, two months after his release from Active Duty, to ride his motorcycle to a cycle shop and look for a new helmet. He wanted a black one that he could post his unit decal on, and the name of one of his closest friends and fellow Ranger, "Sgt Justin Allen". Aaron had been upset at losing his Ranger buddy, so soon after returning to the states in June. He wanted to post that Memorial on his helmet.
A man, Aaron may have tried to pass along a double ramp and from the right, swerved at him and according to one witness hit him, forcing him pass the lane, the shoulder and into the end of a guard rail along the entry ramp of the freeway.
He died almost instantly. I am very grateful to "Frederick" who jumped out of another vehicle, ran over to Aaron, and held his hand as he died. One tear fell from Aaron's eye. I'd like to think it was for his DAD who he knew would be crushed. It was only with me, that he felt he could shed a tear and let his heart be known. To God first, and to his father. I miss him, sorrow for the times I will not see him here again. But I do not grieve for I will see him again. God's realm is Aaron's battlefield now. His Ranger buddies who have fallen are with him there carrying on the fight. RLTW
I want you all to know, a year is almost by. No one has come forward. The Driver of the other vehicle ran. The Sheriff's department will not continue their investigation nor a search for the vehicle.
I am not bitter. I am not angry, that was taken from me only through much prayer and faith.
I do want my son remembered by His country as a warrior, by his friends a faithful friend, and by his Ranger Brothers, a faithful, tough and brave warrior who cared most about those with him and finally by his family: he was faithful to God, and to each of us.
May God keep you all, brave warriors, brothers in the fight.
