'When I am dead, cry for me a little. Think of me sometimes, but not too much. It is not good for you to dwell too long. Think of me now and again as I was in life, at some moment which is pleasant to recall, but not for long. Leave me in peace as I shall leave you, too, in peace.'

“You are Remembered”
Peace and condolence, to the family and friends. “He which hath no stomach, to this fight, let him depart. But we in it, shall be remembered. We few, we happy few, we band of brothers!! For he today, that sheds his blood with me, shall always be my brother.” Rest in peace brave soldier, you have not been forgotten. (W.Shakespeare) May God Bless you, for your Sacrifice!!!

Today marks fourty years since the day you were killed in South Vietnam trying to do what you saw as your duty. You would be happy to see that the young men and women in our Armed Forces today are admired for sharing that same patriotic spirit you had. It is also true that Americans have come to see your sacrifice as having been noble and you and your comerades of that time are in their thoughts on those days we all celebrate the memory and sacrifice of our soldier heros. I remember you as a classmate in high school and I know anytime there is a gathering of the Class of '64 you are remembered and spoken of fondly because you will always be special for all of us.

I learned of Joe from his fiance, Paula, who is now my wife. He was by all accounts a wonderful, loving, and accomplished young man who's life ended far too soon. A good student, captain of the football team and extremely well liked. Who knows what wonderful things he and his loving sweetheart Paula would have accomplished together. I feel like I know him through Paula and thank him and the others like him for the tremendous sacrifice that they made for us all. We and certainly Paula, miss him, thank him and will never forget him.

AS I READ THESE MESSAGES, FROM HIS FRIENDS BACK HOME, I CAN SAFELY SAY, HE NEVER CHANGED WHILE SERVING, HIS COUNTRY. HE WAS, A BORN LEADER. HE WAS, MY SGT., WHILE IN VIETNAM. HE INSTILLED CONFIDENCE, IN HIS FELLOW SOLDIERS. HE WAS, ONE TOUGH COOKIE. HE DIED, DOING WHAT HE DID BEST, LEADING US, TO TAKE BACK OVERRUN POSITIONS. I'LL ALWAYS REMEMBER YOU, "NY., JOE," YOU WERE A GREAT LEADER. GOD BLESS.

Joe was the package that every parent would hope their child to be. He was a good athlete, worked hard to keep his grades up and was really popular with his classmates. What really made him special is that he always was a nice person, fair, respectful, courteous and friendly. How much we all lost - what might had been if this very special person had been allowed to make his mark in the world.

Joe was, a good student and was, a very warm and sincere person. He had planned to go, to college, but choose, to serve his country, first. In LIFE, he was our school's, "Football Hero." In DEATH, he remains "A Country's Hero." I'am proud, of "OUR JOE." ~lilyrose~

I have looked for years for this hero's name. I was (and still am) so moved by the escort duty I had. I learned today that I was born 6 days before Joseph. I served a year in Vietnam, and have felt an attachment to Joseph since the services in Lindenhurt at the funeral home and church. I was so young that I was probably not much help to the friends and family then. I have always felt a connection, though, since the funeral in late March, 1967.
