CPO Joe

August 24th, 2012

8-24-12While out on my ride through Queens, I met 88 year old former Chief Petty Officer Joe, who was in the Navy during WWII and Korea. Joe enlisted in the Navy at the age of 17. He had to have his parents sign to approve his actions. Joe has patriotism in his blood.
Joe is my new Hero!
One of Joe’s many core values is humility. He says he isn’t a Hero, he was doing what was needed and what he believed in.
Joe is an example to all of us. Humility is a core value that would be refreshing to see much more of.
Thank you CPO Joe for your service to our country.
