I only recently became aware of Joe's death. So sorry that he passed away.

I was HONORED to serve alongside Joe, as another Squad Leader Sgt, while we served with the 101st Airborne Div., (3/187th, Co C) in Vietnam. He was VERY squared away, and had a really good sense of humor for where we were at. I left country, before he was wounded.

RIP Joe, and God Bless his family.
