Joe - United States Air Force

Joe is a hero in the shop.  The team affectionately calls him "Uncle Joe" because of his wisdom as the resident elder and his ability to mentor the team.  Joe's service began during the Vietnam War where he served as aircrew on the AC130 gunship.  He continued to serve for decades in the Air Force, including as the flight engineer on Air Force One for three US Presidents.  
His impact as a patriot and leader led President George H W Bush to request Uncle Joe be present on the tarmac at Andrews AFB when his remains were brought to the US Capitol to lay in state following his passing.  
We are privileged to have Uncle Joe on our team and although he is in his 70s, he outworks people half his age.

  • I had gotten a flag last year in memory of my father, Bill Brown. He was an Air Force Veteran of 23 years. I honestly clicked on Joes Picture because he was Air Force, hey I’m biased. What a surprise! This was an amazing story and to also find out that he still takes time to give back to others.

    Thank you Joe for your continued service to our country. God bless you and all that serve this country.

  • Hi Joe. You’re the one who made my Phantom Fury flag! Drew sold it to us and heard about my time as an Army Nurse in Vietnam…Qui Nhon. He told us about you! Hopefully, I will get down to FOV and meet you soon. Best, Mary
