Joseph “Joe” Fernandes, U.S. Army World War II Veteran

It’s with great sadness that we share the news of the passing U.S. Army World War II Veteran, Joe Fernandes, our "Sweet Joe". Joe really loved coming to our packing events and was even asking when the next packing party would be right before he passed away. 

Here are some pictures of Joe from a previous packing party:

We presented a flag and certificate to the Fernandes family in honor of our "Sweet Joe" at the August 4th packing party. Also, the chair that Joe used while help taping the care packages was memorialized in his honor.

A flag and certificate were presented to Joe's family.

Here's a link to a a video that was taped at our August 4, 2018 packing party where we honored Joe and his family: Volunteers-Honor-World-War-II-Veteran-With-Day-of-Action

Joe made our packing parties very special and will be greatly missed.

The family asks that donations be made to the Airborne Angel Cadets of Texas in his name.
