Since 1861, the President, in the name of Congress, has awarded a little more than 3,400 Medals of Honor to our Nation’s bravest servicemen and women. The Barnes Memorial Field, where we play baseball, softball, soccer or have fun at Dedham Day, is named for one of the recipients. John Barnes was raised in Dedham and played on the same fields that we play on today. Below is the official citation for John Barnes Medal of Honor:BARNES, JOHN ANDREW III - Rank and organization: Private First Class, U.S. Army, Company C, 1st Battalion, 503d Infantry 173d Airborne Brigade. Place and date: Dak To, Republic of Vietnam, 12 November 1967. Entered service at: Boston, Mass. Born: 16 April 1945, Boston, Mass. Citation: For conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity in action at the risk of his life above and beyond the call of duty. Pfc. Barnes distinguished himself by exceptional heroism while engaged in combat against hostile forces. Pfc. Barnes was serving as a grenadier when his unit was attacked by a North Vietnamese force, estimated to be a battalion. Upon seeing the crew of a machine gun team killed, Pfc. Barnes, without hesitation, dashed through the bullet swept area, manned the machine gun, and killed 9 enemy soldiers as they assaulted his position. While pausing just long enough to retrieve more ammunition, Pfc. Barnes observed an enemy grenade thrown into the midst of some severely wounded personnel close to his position. Realizing that the grenade could further injure or kill the majority of the wounded personnel, he sacrificed his life by throwing himself directly onto the hand grenade as it exploded. Through his indomitable courage, complete disregard for his own safety, and profound concern for his fellow soldiers, he averted a probable loss of life and injury to the wounded members of his unit. Pfc. Barnes' extraordinary heroism, and intrepidity at the cost of his life, above and beyond the call of duty, are in the highest traditions of military service and reflect great credit upon himself, his unit, and the U.S. Army. Due to the uncertainty of the weather the annual Memorial Day Program will be either held at The Dedham Middle School, if it rains; Or at Brookdale Cemetery, weather permitting, on Monday May 28, 2018 at 10:00am, and all are welcome. The ceremony takes approximately one hour. It is a fantastic family event and it will be the best thing you do this Memorial Day weekend. God Bless America.

The home sale data is important because it is fresh evidence of how the real estate market in Dedham is performing. Sold data is the true barometer when conducting a market analysis. Some consumers and real estate agents wrongly use current available properties as a lead basis for pricing analysis. Although, current inventory pricing should be considered because of the competition factor. The true meaning of a home present value is what like/similar homes have recently sold for.
