WHO IS JOSEPH SCHIRO
Special Forces Chief Warrant Officer Joseph Lee Schiro, an American hero, a devoted father, son, brother and husband, was killed in action on October 6th, 2012. Joseph was killed by enemy forces during direct ground combat while serving as part of Operation Enduring Freedom in Afghanistan. Joseph was the father of three very young children.
Joseph lived with a character that spanned generations. He was the type of man seasoned veteran’s salute and children respect. Joseph’s only limitation in life proved to be the amount of time he had to serve the world. His proudest accomplishments were those involving his children.
In Joseph’s passing the nation has lost a great treasure. His family has lost a caring father, son, brother and husband. His community has lost a gracious neighbor, and the brotherhood of Special Forces has lost a true mentor, leader, and friend.
