More detail on this person: I have received word that CWO Jon Bach (pilot for the 243rd Freight Trains) (Viet Nam 69-70) died from cancer back in 1998. His son found us thru the 243rd website and asked if anybody knew his father. Jon died after many months of suffering. The family and doctors suspect Agent Orange was the cause. Jon was from Maine and is actually listed in the 1998 directory. He is buried at Arlington National Cementary.

May he rest in peace.


Burial information: Arlington National Cemetery, Arlington, VA
