A Hero’s Welcome, we’ve received a request to honor an American Hero and Vietnam Veteran on his upcoming birthday in May. The family witnessed a welcome home we organized in Glenolden a year or two ago and Jane (our Hero’s wife) knew she wanted to do the same for her HERO! OOORAH!!!
Jane, A Hero’s Welcome and the Warriors’ Watch Riders would be honored to help you give Joe a big birthday surprise!
PVT Joseph M. Tier, Jr. USMC and Vietnam Veteran. Served from May 8, 1967 thru Sept. 16th 1969 2 yrs., 9 mo. and 28 days.
Bio supplied by Joe’s wife, Jane.
Joe served two tours in Vietnam on the USS Boston. He loaded the ammo 5” -8” for firing off the ship 5 miles from land 6 hours on and 6 hours off. Joe’s awards include National Defense Medal, Vietnam Service Metal, Vietnam Campaign Medal, Combat Action Ribbon, Sharpshooter Badge M-14, Good Conduct Medal and Proof Director Small Arms.
Joseph graduated from Temple with a BA in Accounting. Joseph enjoys working with wood. Joseph’s family includes Jane and son Michael J. Tier. Joe’s Dad was Navy WWII Veteran and his mother is buried in Arlington National Cemetery. Joe has remained isolated far too long. His daughter from his first marriage was killed by a drunk driver in 2004 and has become even more isolated. All too painful due to PTSD. I am hoping I can get Joe a Therapy Dog for his BIG DAY. Joe is not well at all.
So, as you read this…it sounds like our veteran sure could use some WWR and AHW Rock Star Treatment…
