In Honor Of SPC Joseph Andrew Bauer
Websters Dictionary defines hero as a man of distinguished courage or ability, admired for his
brave deeds and noble qualities. A person who, in the opinion of others, has heroic qualities or has
performed a heroic act and is regarded as a model or ideal. That is EXACTLY what my husband
SPC Joseph Andrew Bauer is, a hero. On July 24th 2010 while doing route clearance operations in
Afghanistan, my husbands vehicle hit an IED. Joe was killed instantly. Not a day goes by that I don't
think of him. Every day I miss his smile, his smell, his laugh, his entire life. He was full of happiness
and hope, intelligent and handsome. He was an amazing soldier, husband, friend and man. He was
27 at the time of his death. He will never have the chance to be a father, bungee jump or buy a new
motorcycle... all the things he was looking forward to. Remember as you live your daily life, he gave
his up for his country. I want people to remember him, to love him and to appreciate !
his sacrifice and for all he's done for our freedom and our way of life. He will ALWAYS be my hero, I
just want him to be every ones hero.
