Joe was my friend and mentor. We grew up in different parts of the Bronx. I worked for Joe as an assistant camp counselor when he was in college and I was in high school. Because of Joe I joined ROTC during college. I received my Army commission in 1968. I was serving overseas when my family sent me word of Joe's death. Since that date I have missed my friend and remember him as the special person he will always be in my life.
