A Marine pilot stationed in Beaufort who died after ejecting from his aircraft Wednesday night off the coast of Japan has been identified.
Marine Capt. James E. Frederick was pronounced dead after his body was recovered during search operations, a Marine Corps news release said Friday morning. Frederick, 32, was from Corpus Christi, Texas, and an F/A 18 pilot with Marine Fighter Attack Squadron 115. The squadron is stationed at Marine Corps Air Station Beaufort. Frederick had been deployed to III Marine Expeditionary Force of Marine Corps Air Station Iwakuni, Japan.
My heartfelt sympathies and prayers go out to the family of Capt. James Frederick. Please know that there are many Marines and their families grieving with you at this time.
...praying for peace to bring comfort and courage to face the days ahead with loving memories to forever hold within your hearts.... for always,
