It is with a sad and heavy heart that I let you know Barry of IraqVet888 has passed. Eric has some more information.
Unfortunately after doing some google 'research' it seems Barry had some legal and medical issues during the months before his passing. Out of respect I will not get into his business but will say that we are all human and have shortcomings. I will not detract from the 2A supporter, trainer, firearms educator, character and arguably the best tactical beard owner ever Barry was by degrading his name in any way. Nor will I tolerate that talk here.
There is a fund to help the family with his final costs online if you want to donate. I think if you've every enjoyed his piece of the Iraqvet888 page a Jackson ($20) is a fair contribution for the entertainment he gave you. I will be donating to the cause myself. Making sure Barry can rest in peace is worth a small contribution. Whatever shortcomings he may have had Barry is a good man who deserves respectful and appropriate final arraignments.
Honestly this whole thing depresses the shit out of me.
In closing I will leave you with what is probably my favorite Barry video and certainly the best multi big name youtube collaboration, the Hoss USMC Pony and Barry Backpack.
RIP Barry, we miss you. Youtube will never be the same without you.
