 Additional Information
Last Known Activity
His 1st (of 2) Silver Star Citation reads:

Major Jack W. Bomar distinguished himself by gallantry in connection with military operations against an opposing armed force in Southeast Asia on 4 February 1967. On that date, Major Bomar navigated an electronic countermeasures support aircraft into an extremely hazardous area to suppress radar controlled antiaircraft artillery and surface to air missiles in support of strike aircraft. Aware of the possibility of lethal missile sites and hostile aircraft in the area where poor radar returns and frequent course changes made navigation exceptionally difficult. By his gallantry and devotion to duty, Major Bomar has reflected great credit upon himself and the United States Air Force.
