Officer Wood,
On today, the 20th anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice-not just for your Community but for our Country as well when you served with the U.S. Army as well during the Vietnam War. And to your Family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.

Martha, our prayers are with you today and always. God called a hero home this day in 1998 to continue his flight above. Flight Officer Barry Wood, you sir are a hero we will never forget. Continue to rest in peace and keep watch from above.

I knew Barry personally and he was a great person and so much fun to be around. Always ready with a comment and a quick smile. He has truly been missed.

To Mrs. Wood,

I have had the honor in researching your husband in a recent training course, Blue Courage. I would be lying if I said that I did not have tears rolling down my face while researching him. The tears of sorrow for the loss of a great man and an officer were tremendiously out weighed by the tears of pride and joy. In my opinion, your husband embodied the reason why I became and officer, to help people. When we all raise our hands and take that oath, we all accept a life full of uncertainty and a life full of endless possibility. Some may say that life is not worth it but I beg to differ. If we, not only as officers but as people can help, influence, impact and or save at least one person; I would say the life we chose to live was well worth it. On more than one occasion, through out many years, your husband made many selfless acts that saved many lives. Some may say that on Wednesday, November 4, 1998, Officer Wood not only payed the ultimate price, but made his last selfless act. Once again I think differently, he may not be here physically but he continues to act through all of us.

I only met you once, but was I was a partner with Mark for about a year. I was obviously a rookie. As you know, we just celebrated the Star Spangled Spectacular. The Blue Angels showed an memorable display. I just know that YOU were guiding them over Baltimore.

I never knew Barry but through his wife Martha, I have become to know him. He was an incredable person. As I attended to tenth anniversary memorial ceremony held at Martins Airport in Baltimore, I saw Martha's pride to be his wife of 28 years. God Bless you and keep you in God's hands.

It just doesn't seem real that ten years have passed since that fateful day. You would be so proud of Martha though, the way she has risen to the task of helping the memorial museum become reality. I now you've been joined by a few more pilots this year, and I know you're welcoming them in, and watching over the rest. Keep a eye on Martha, she needs to feel you watching over her as she drives around in the "blue bug".
