    We trained together for 1 year at Camp Pendleton training for deployment to Vietnam. During that time I got to know and trust him as a friend. I preceded Joseph in the battlefield. I was wounded in action there also. I was in the hospital in the Philippines when I found out from other wounded Marines that he was killed in action. It sat in me deeply.

    RIP, Joe!! I remember the little things that you did for me, like cleaning the mud off my first communion dress. I fell in the mud while I was walking to the church for my first communion. You were an altar boy at the time. That was maybe about 1956. Another time I forgot my plastic flute in 3rd grade. The teacher(I think it was Mr. Narwrock )made me stand in the corner,until you brought my flute to me. These are just little things that you helped me with, but I will remember your kindness forever, brother!!

    Although I never met you, I feel your presence daily. I have your flag and your pictures right in my living room. I will keep Uncle Harry and grandma safe with me. I know you are keeping my dad safe with you. I love you both! Xo Heather Thimm
