Vietnam Veteran-Air Force Pilot
Lest We Forget Their Sacrifice
On 07 April 1965 Captains Arthur Baker and James W. Lewis launched from Bien Hoa Air Base, South Vietnam, as one in a flight of four B-57B aircraft on an interdiction mission targeted in Xieng Khouang Province, Laos. Their aircraft was last seen descending through a thin under cast toward the target area and it never reappeared. Extensive search and rescue efforts through 12 April failed to locate either the aircraft or its crew. On 14 April 1965 the New China News Agency reported the shoot-down of a B-57 approximately three miles north-northeast of the town of Khang Khay. Both crewmen were initially reported missing in action in South Vietnam while on a classified mission. Their loss location later was changed to Laos. In January 1974 Major Baker's next-of-kin requested his case review go forward and he was d killed in action, body not recovered, on 08 January 1974. Lewis was d dead/body not recovered, on 16 April 1982.

Missing you...
You were then, are now, and will always be my HERO! Words cannot express the deep longing of the heart for the one who is not here now. So many years have passed, yet the memory of you is like not one day has gone by. I suppose you will always be missed by the one's that love you so. It's because of your great love that we will always remember you and keep you near to our hearts. In this way life truly is eternal and you are not gone...and never forgotten.

Keeping you in my thoughts today, and in my heart always “Some say time is like a river That our time has passed or is yet to come But I believe that time is like a wheel in the sky Though our time has passed It will come around again, I know Somewhere in time we were together And somewhere in time I know That we will be together again Even if it takes a thousand lifetimes I’ll be waiting for you somewhere in time” ~ Paul Sprayberry
