Friends...This is a copy of a statement I received from the National
Military Intelligence Association, which was released by The Honorable
Emmett Paige, Jr., Assistant Secretary of Defense for Command, Control,
Communications Intelligence (C3I). Dr. (Major General) Horton, who was
active with the Boy Scouts in many areas throughout his career, was the
Deputy Asst Secretary of Defense for C3I. When I get an address of where to
send cards, I will forward it to the lists.

Dear NMIA Viewers,
It is with extreme sorrow that I relay to you the following note issued
on Saturday, 29 March 1997, by The Honorable Emmett Paige, Jr.,
"It is with deept regret that I advise you of the death of Dr. Barry F.
Horton. Dr. Horton committed suicide by gunshot in the shower at his
home last evening or early this marning. His body was found by his
wife Patsy this morning.
As most of you know, Dr. Horton was a graduate of the USMA at West
Point and had served all of his adult life in the military and DoD. He
was highly respected by all of us in the military and civilian
community in DoD as well as those in industry and other government
sectors. Although he had outstanding jobs in the public sector, they
were not substitutes for the work he loved and deeply missed and that's
being associated with the military. He had a very hard time coping
with no longer being an active day to day player with the military.
Dr. Horton was very active with the West Point Alumni, The Boy Scouts
and many professional organizations including AFCEA, and many
Dr. Horton had long been a member of the NMIA Board of Directors - and
was the driving force behind our Lemay Chapter. He will be missed and
I ask all of you to join in our prayers for Dr. Horton and his family.
