    Barclay was killed after his spear `bounced` off the ground and stabbed him in the `chest`. He died while being life flighted to hospital
    `Freak accident. It impaled him under his sternum killing him.`

    Fulton said Barclay, who was from Virginia, had ‘led a distinguished career’ as a retired US Army Lt. Colonel, and that he is survived by his wife and two daughters. He continued: ‘He died doing what he loved, but will still be missed. RIP Peter aka: Terafan Greydragon !’

    So many on this forum get upset when someone sticks by their point.

    Ironically, this guy died from not defending his point.

    This is what happens when you play with sharp sticks; some people never learn. :dunno:

    U.S. Army Light Colonel... Tip of the spear.

    Seems like he stuck by it... maybe got stuck by it. OK, I'm a little confused. What's the dealie on the spear's intent? Possibly too existential for me. Perhaps a GATE forum issue?

    I knew what this thread was about from the title and hearing about this on the news the other day haha. All joking aside though, still feel bad for his kids and wife.

    After a distinguished military career he took a stab at something else.

    I wonder what exactly he did in the military?

    Was it dangerous, was it elite, was he one of the guys at......


    ....the tip of the spear?
