I was a good friend of Joe back in our high school days.  After St. Joe's, he joined the US Marine Corps while I joined the US Army Security Agency.  The last time I saw Joe, he said that when he got out of the service, his goal was to come back to Kenosha, and to join the police force.

I felt so bad when I learned that Joe had died, a Marine Corps Sargeeant, after serving our country so honorably.  I had been told that he had served in Marine Recon in the 'Nam, but had died at Camp Lejuene.  For almost 50 years, I have never followed up in confirming that info.  I feel remiss.

What I don't understand is why there is no flag after Joe's name, in the St. Joseph HS "Classmate Profile".  From what I know of his service record, Joe certainly deserves such recognition.  

I still remember our days at St. Joseph, and the energy he exuded, back when we were young.

Joe and I were classmates throughout St Mary's Elementary & St Joes HS.  We were nieghborhood friends living about 1 block apart.  He saved my behind a couple of times and I was proud when he joined the service.  I heard he served in Vietnam and was a real warrior. I was sadden to hear he was killed when the army jeep he was driving tipped over.  I still think of him.  Nice guy....
