As part of D-Day, the Normandy invasion, Joe landed in France on Omaha Beach around July 15th, 1944. Joe fought the Battle of Cherbourg, Battle of the Bulge, forged north into Germany crossing the Rhine River, then into central Austria and Czechoslovakia. His division helped liberate multiple concentration camps; part of a large group of camps and sub-camps in Austria.
Joe enjoys sharing his story with Veterans groups, churches, synagogues, schools and training and civic organizations. His hope is to help generate donations for the Military Order of the Purple Heart.
"I just want the world to know. I want to impress on kids that freedom is not free. And, don't take things for granted because somebody had to pay the price." - Joe
