Joe Jackson's service in the US Army had him see action in the depths of the jungle in Vietnam. He found that friends were fleeting, either being wounded, killed or transitioning in and out of his unit. Still, those friendships were firm, and when shoulder to shoulder against a relentless foe, he couldn't have handpicked a better group of soldiers to stand with. Joe had several hobbies, had settled down into his little home, and drove his older than dirt car to appointments and errands.

He also suffered a devastating injury that cost him parts of his body. Still, his mind was strong, his will even stronger.
As courageous as each of them were on their own, this war could not be won with an individual effort.
