John Baney was a son of Mr. and Mrs. R. E. Baney and was associated with his father in the farming business when he volunteered for service in the Armed Forces on July 24, 1944. He was sent to Fort Logan for a week, then on to Camp Wolters, Tex., where he took 17 weeks of basic training in the Infantry. From there he went to Fort Ord, Calif., and to Ft. Lawton Wash., on his way to service in the Pacific.
After further training in the Hawaiian Islands and five weeks of advanced training in Saipan, he went into battle on Okinawa on April 12, 1944. It was there he made the Supreme Sacrifice when he was killed on April 22, 1944. John received marksmanship medals in rifle, automatic rifle, bayonet and machine gun during his training. John was interred in a temporary military cemetery, and then returned to the States on the U. S. Sergeant Jack H. Pendleton, an Army Transport which brought home 2,061 American war dead.
