BRAVE PILOT

On his very first mission on 10 May 1966 while bombing a bridge 15 miles north of the DMZ near Xuan Hoa, NVN, he was lost when his aircraft was hit by enemy ground fire and crashed. The crash site was excavated in July 1995 and in March 1999 John's remains were identified and returned to the USA for burial.

First of many to thank

I came here to find you first Major John Bailey. My Mom introduced me to you when I I found your name on a bracelet in her jewelry box when I was 15, 1985. You stayed with me always on my wrist for 15 years. I cried when I decided to take the bracelet off. But I have it still.
During that time I said your name daily, I tried to talk as often as I could so that others would know your name. I did not want to ever forget.
Thank you so much for your dedication to our Country, your service and your sacrifice.
It was so nice to see your face...

MIA bracelet

When in 8th grade, we wore bracelets for MIA/POW. Mine was for Major Bailey. I wore it faithfully, and never lost hope he would come home. Several years ago I found out what happened. I have never forgotten this man who I never met. On this Memorial Day, my thoughts are once again with him and his family. I still have the bracelet somewhere.
