South Philly Hero

I knew Joel from the YMHA. He was a serious and talented jock. He was afraid of nothing. We lost touch as I was focused on getting my degre at Temple. I was in Brooklyn studying for law school when I read in the Jewish Exponet that he was killed. I wepted and cursed. A couple of years later I would join the Army serving for 35 years plus. I was never in combat or a hero. Looking back now as Joel sacrifice is even more vivid

One great friend and missed.

Still remember the last time I saw Joel, he was walking towards me on Snyder Ave. outside Southern June 64. A big smile with his cracked tooth showing through, he looked great, No hugs back then but a good hand shake and pleasantries. I’ll see ya, and he was on his way. The girls loved him, l remembered two from Furness but his real love was swimming, I’ll see you at the “Y” I told him. The strange thing is I said we were cousins, we had the same last name Bernstein, it was a good fit. I never saw him again after that day in June but he was never out of my thoughts of fond memory’s and sadness. I do miss him.

Joel was a good man!. I remember him as one tough hombre. I used to visit south philly, when I lived in North philly. Would always stop by and say hello .

No one knows the pain of those who served in Nam, and those of us who survived and feel guilty we survived, and guys like Joel who left us.
