Joe joined the Navy in April 2017 and after completing basic training and “A” school was assigned to the USS George H.W. Bush (CVN 77) in August, 2017 where he participated in flight operations as an Aviation Boatswain Mate (Handling).

Joe was a generous and giving person, always willing to share what he had with others and would frequently bring home friends for holidays that had nowhere else to go. He will always be remembered for that and for his ability to make people smile.

After graduating High School and starting to study Homeland Security at Monmouth University, Joe decided to enlist in the Navy because he wanted to give back to a country who gave him so much. His sister, Stephanie Naglak said of him “He is everything I hope to be one day and should always be remembered as a hero with a big heart” A dragon rises from a small stream. He is forever loved.
