Lt Joe Gambino, USAF

Joe Gambino took me on an "orientation" ride over Cambodia, the day before his birthday, 1973. He was shot-down the next day. Joe was an OV-10 pilot (Rustic) attached to the 8th TFW, Ubon; I was an intelligence officer and briefed the aircrews daily. Joe was an aggressive FAC, not reluctant to get close for a good look at his target.

Kingsbridge Little League 1961

Joe was a catcher and pitcher. Never spoke much but was solid through and through. He no-hit my team Washington Heights in August 1961. After that season I never saw him again until I went to the Memorial in Washington DC some 50 years later.

Joe and I were classmates in the Class of 65. He was a center/linebacker on our class football team. A really good guy and friend. I miss him. He was remembered at our 50th reunion in 2015. I visit the Memorial any time I'm in DC. Drawn there.
