WWII Vet Doie Barnes Receives Accolades on 99th Birthday

Ocean City’s summer tradition of conducting flag-raising ceremonies at the Water Park across from the Music Pier is always special. Thursday morning’s event took on added significance as the city paid tribute to Marine Corps veteran Doie Barnes, on her 99th birthday. “It was a very nice thing to do for a wonderful person,” said her friend and fellow World War II veteran Joe Caserta, 98. “She appreciated it a great deal.” Barnes, of Ocean City, was one of the first women to join the Corps after the Marine Corps Women’s Reserve was established in 1942.
