Captain - United States Marine Corps
Shot Down: October 13, 1967
Released: March 14, 1973

I was born in Ypsilanti, Michigan on 26 February 1941. I have two sisters,
both younger than myself.

I attended Eastern Michigan University but did not graduate before joining
the service in 1964. I was commissioned as a Second Lieutenant in the Marine
Corps in 1966 when I received my wings as a Naval Flight Officer.

I was sent to the Marine Corps Air Station at Beaufort, South Carolina for
further training before being sent to Chu Lai in the Republic of Vietnam in
February of 1967. In October of that year I was shot down in North Vietnam
and taken prisoner.

I have left the Marines in order to continue my education, as I would like
to attend law school after completing my undergraduate degree.

Among Warner's awards and decorations is the Silver Star.

The Honorable James Warner and his wife Judy reside in Maryland. They have 3
children and 2 grandchildren. He enjoys gardening, hunting and shooting. He
has served as a former Senior White House Domestic Policy Advisor.
