Thank You

Dear Captain Joseph Harris,
Thank you for your service as a Rotary Wing Aviation Unit Commander - Helicopter Pilot with the 1st Cavalry. Today is your 47th anniversary, sad. It is Lent, which is a time of preparation. The war was years ago, but we all need to acknowledge the sacrifices of those like you who answered our nation's call. Please watch over America, it stills needs your strength, courage and faithfulness. Rest in peace with the angels.

To Comrades we have known

Good time flying with you in Blachorse brother. Used to kid you about SEC ball, each year a toast, we were such kids, but didn’t know that did we? Losing you hurt old friend. See you at Fiddlers Green soon enough. Til then, Allons!

Joe Harris a dear friend

I met Joe playing on the sawdust pile at his father saw mill on Tharpe Street in Tallahassee in 1955. I then was a Cub Scout with him and his mother was our den mother. I played little league baseball with him. I went to Marion Institute because he was going, even thought he went a year after I started. We both went to FSU together and he was the best man at my wedding in 1968. I called him my brother most of my life and his mother was always "Mom Harris " even at my wedding. She is the reason I graduated. I loved them both as much if not more than my own family. I miss them both dearly. Four of my children always visited "Mom" Harris" when they attended FSU.
They both gave so much love to everyone they met. I cry most every time I think of his contribution to me and his family, community and country. He was a great man!
It was a 100 mm cannon that blew black powder out the vent one New Years Eve that caused the blue dots. He lit the fuse, it didn't go off so he looked down into the vent and then it went off giving him the famous blue dots.
