Senior Drill Instructor '''Dwight T. Barnes''' is a Marine Drill Instructor stationed in Santego Military Base, Arizona. He trained some if not all the men in the Hazardous Environment Combat Unit, including Adrian Shephard.

==Behind the scenes==

Three cut animations intended for the various Drill Instructors seen during Shephard's training can still be found in the shared model "drill.mdl". These include blowing a whistle, shouting into a megaphone, and looking through binoculars.


*During the game, HECU soldiers sometimes say "If only Drill Instructor Barnes could see me now...".

*Barnes is likely inspired by Senior Drill Instructor Gunnery Sergeant Hartman from the film ''WikipediaFull Metal Jacket|Full Metal Jacket''.

*If injured or killed, Barnes uses Black Mesa Security Force|security guard voice clips, as any other Marine found at Santego.
