Memory Eternal!
March 16, 2010
Hank Bauer was a stand up man and friend to my Grandfather John McGinty. My Grandfather talked very highly of Hank and our family was very saddend by your loss. They served together on Okinawa and Guam. I am not sure if Hank was on New Georgia, but I believe they were there together. John died one year after Hank and we still have a picture of them together in the war. Hank mentions John in the book "Semper Fi Mac," he refers to John as McGinny. From the McGinty's to the Bauer's, we are deeply sorry for your loss.

Dear Bauer Family,
As a youngster I sat with my Grandfather watching the Yankees play and listening to him tell me that if I wanted to be a ballplayer than I should watch how Hank Bauer plays the game. I regret that my Grandfather did not live long enough to see Hank win the 1966 World Series. I have the feeling they are up in Heaven talking baseball.
Hank will always be a part of some very special memories for me.
May the Lord Bless you and give you strength.

May the Lord richly bless the family of Hank Bauer. I loved watching him play for Yankees when I was a small boy. Later, while serving in the Corps, I learned of his even more impressive heroism as a Leatherneck in the Pacific. I value his autograph which I obtained at a baseball show. All Americans can learn how to conduct themselves from Hank Bauer. SEMPER FIDELIS.

Hank was someone whom everyone could learn a lesson from. He always made an effort to push forward and showed that he had the energy to do just that. I will miss him.

Hi,
I never knew your father, but my dad did. They served together at Okinawa. Dad said Mr. Bauer was his sergeant. Dad was severely wounded, but he must've been one of the six survivors of that platoon. We lived in the south suburbs of Chicago and I do remember when the Yanks played the White Sox, Dad would always see Mr. Bauer and on occasion they would go to Gino's Steak House in Harvey. I thank God for courageous men like our fathers, their legacy will continue as long as our nation remains free. I got to thinking about them today. April 1st is the anniversary of the invasion of Okinawa.

Wanted to let the Bauer family know your Dad is still making his presence known. We are redoing our bathroom and written on the back of the drywall where a medicine cabinet would have been at one time:
"Historical Marker - Razor blades used by the Yankee Greats
Mickey Mantle, Yogi Berra & Hank Bauer cleaned from this spot.
Sunday April 25, 1971
The Lowery's lived here from Nov 10 1963 to ?"
When we moved into our house, a neighbor, June Koontz, told us Hank Bauer had lived here - but we didn't believe her. I was at the same High School with Hank Jr but don't ever remember meeting your Dad.
Sorry for your loss

I have known Hank since 1987 and had the pleasure of spending time with him for 20 years at the Fantasy Baseball Camps. He called me Polo and I called him Sarge. He will be missed. My favorite picture of him was with my dad, Joe Sr., in the dugout at the 1991 Mantle / Ford Baseball Camp. My dad passed away in July and now plays ball with Hank, Mickey, Scooter, Clete, Enos, Catfish, & Spence in that great stadium in the sky. Thanks for the memories Sarge.
