JOINT BASE LEWIS-McCHORD, Wash. - The wife of Army Spc. Joseph Bauer Tuesday called her late husband a hero.
Misty Bauer’s comment came in a statement released by the Public Affairs Office of Fort Lewis-McChord in the State of Washington.
That’s the base where the Owensville native was stationed and where a memorial service will be held Wednesday for him and three others from his unit who were killed July 24th in Afghanistan.
“Specialist Joseph Andrew Bauer is an amazing husband, soldier and friend,” Misty said. “He enjoyed his family. He loved watching football and baseball – especially our hometown Cincinnati teams.”
She called him loyal, caring, honest and willing to defend others.
“He was drawn to a life and career that shared his values, the United States Army,” Misty continued.
“His strength, honor, courage, commitment and love will be forever remembered by all who knew him.”
Misty asked for prayers for all members of the military and privacy for her family.
“Joseph was extraordinary and I am absolutely blessed to be his wife,” she said. “Joseph is a hero in my eyes and I will always love him.”
Bauer’s body will arrive at Butler County Airport on Friday morning. A public visitation is scheduled for Saturday from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. at Gwen-Mooney Funeral Home at Spring Grove Cemetery. A private funeral and burial will be held Sunday.
A memorial service is planned for Tuesday, August 10th at 6:30 p.m. at St. Louis Church in Owensville.
