Bond was the bombardier on B-24 #42-73070, assigned to the 10th Air Force, 7th Bombardment Group, 493rd Bombardment Squadron. They were part of a formation to bomb targets in the Rangoon area. About 15 minutes from the target area they were attacked by Japanese fighter planes. the bomber lost #1 engine and they fell behind the formation, losing altitude. They dropped their bombs over the target and seemed to hold 9,400 feet until just south and east of Akyab, when they went into a heavy cloud bank and were not seen again.

He was awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross, the Air Medal and the Purple Heart.

Because his body was not recovered, he is memorialized on the Tablets of the Missing.
