The world lost a true patriot! John was my mentor during my tenure with MOAA and MOWW. John was always ready to help with all and every activities and he always said; The answer is yes, now what can I do to help! John will be missed by not only the military community, but everyone he came in contact with. God Bless John!

I knew John for many years. He was one of my favorite people. His outstanding service to the Military Officers Association of America is legendary. He is with my Mom and Dad, James and Jimmie Lou Norwood, in Heaven now having a great time. Even knowing that, my heart is still broken. We have lost another great man during a time when we most need great, inspirational people in our lives. We all loved you John and will miss you so much!

John and Julie were such good friends for many years. He gave so much of his time to RACMOAA and MOWW and lending a helping hand to the Military Officer's Wives Club currently known as the Bellwood Women's Club. He will be missed by all that knew him. He and Julie are together again, there love for each other was never ending. God Bless

Commander John Alan Baumgarten, SC, USN (Retired), is missed by all who knew him. John was intensely dedicated to the United States of America and the United States Navy. He was likewise fully committed to the Veteran Service Organization in which he was long a member, the Military Order of the World Wars, which has as its mission to selflessly serve youth, community, and nation. After an exceptional Naval career during which he served globally ashore and afloat, John dedicated his time to supporting the Military Order while holding a variety of important command, line and staff positions, e.g, Commander, Richmond Chapter (MOWW). For the last ten years he commanded the Order's premier Region IV, and was responsible for a large area of operations including Virginia, West Virginia, Maryland, and the District of Columbia. As the Region IV Commander, his strong personality allowed him to lead his many chapters to great achievement in the areas of recruiting, donations, ROTC and Scouting Outreach, and patriotic and veteran commemorations, while providing personal fulfillment to all. Most important, John totally loved and was completely dedicated to his wife Julie, who predeceased him. His was a life well-lived. All of John's comrades wish him fair winds and following seas as he continues to sail in our memories.
