I am saddened to learn about the passing of Joe. I met Joe when he was a custodian at Papillion La Vista High School. I was an American History teacher so we had similar interests. He would stop by my room after school and we discussed the Vietnam War. I learned so much from him as he shared his story with me. One year I got up enough courage to ask him if he would speak to my students about his experience in Vietnam. He along with his friend, Harley, spoke to my students every year. I admired Joe for the strength he showed while he was a soldier as well as the courage it took him to deal with the memories of war. I am glad that he being buried at the Omaha National Cemetery so I can visit with him after school just like he did so many years ago. I salute you my friend.
With deep respect, Sandi Boswell Gable
