He's finally home!!

I wanted to let everyone who has left remembrances know that the Bauder family has been notified that he's coming home, finally ??. This past July, a femur bone was recovered from a crash site submerged off the coast of Quynh Phuong. The ostious remains were confirmed by mitochondrial DNA obtained from his sister. His remains will be interred in Arlington Natl Cemetary sometime in Oct/Nov. Thank you all so much for the sweet remembrances and I think this chapter has now ended.....

Sailor Missing From The Vietnam War Accounted For (Bauder, J.)



Defense POW / MIA Accounting Agency·Wednesday, September 13, 2017

Navy Capt. James R. Bauder, missing from the Vietnam War, has now been accounted for.

On Sept. 21, 1966, Bauder was a member of Fighter Squadron Twenty One, USS Coral, as the pilot of an F-4B aircraft in a flight of two aircraft from the USS Coral Sea on a night reconnaissance mission over North Vietnam. During the mission, the other aircraft lost contact with Bauder’s aircraft, and the plane did not return to the ship. No missiles were observed in the target area and no explosions were seen. An extensive search was conducted with negative results. Based on this information, Bauder was declared missing in action.

Interment services are pending; more information will be released 7-10 days prior to scheduled funeral services.
Bauder’s name is recorded on the Walls of the Missing at an American Battle Monuments Commission site along with the others who are missing from the Vietnam War. A rosette will be placed next to his name to indicate he has been accounted for.

Cdr James R Bauder

For Cdr Bauder's daughter Jane, I am so very sorry your father never returned from Vietnam. My dad was also a carrier pilot on several cruises during the Vietnam conflict, his last being in 1965. Though dad was with Attack Squadrons, perhaps they met each other. I have worn your father's bracelet since obtaining it in the early 1980s. My dad returned home safely. I can only hope that one day you will receive answers.

CDR James Bauder Mia/Pow Bracelet

I grew up with my father being in the Marine Corps and going to Vietnam twice. In 1967 when I was around 12, I purchased a Mia/Pow bracelet for $2.00. The name on it was CDR James Bauder 9-21-66. Over the last 50 years I've thought often about his family. I still cherish that bracelet. I would love for his family to have one of the original bracelets of their dad/grandfather. The traveling Vietnam memorial wall will be in town this coming week. I look forward to actually touching his name on the wall.
