Patrick P. Palmer
One of the best. He was a brother from another mother and a brother in arms!! Joe was killed In Viet Nam
I only knew Joe Davi as a classmate from WHS. We took a few classes together, pass each other in the hallways and always say "hi".
I did visit his inscription during my 1995 visit to "The Wall" in Washington, DC. Through the VietNam Veteran's Memorial Wall site, I also corresponded with a close boyhood friend of Joe's - Joe Waldron.
Mr. Waldron wrote: "Joe was KIA in September 1966. He was trying to rescue another soldier injured by a friendly mine -- both were killed. So under the rules of the time, he didn't count as KIA, but "by other means." He was buried in Gales Ferry, CT."
Rest in Peace, Joe Davi.
