Remembering “Bear”

By Brian 

FNC’s Ken LaCorte remembers Guy “Bear” Barattieri:

  To us, Bear was a protector. He worked with FOX as a guard in our Baghdad bureau, leading our large security team when that office was attacked with a cement mixer full of explosives last year.

To insurgents, he was a target. While traveling with contractors to a power plant near Baghdad, they killed him and two others with a roadside bomb.

Bear survived the blast, but he died shortly afterward on an operating table.
