Not a day goes by that I don't think about Joe. He was my T.C. and cared very
much about his crew. He saved my life by not letting me go with him on
that day. I thank him and the Lord for that.

I don't remember anything about my uncle. I was born 15 years after he was killed.
I really don't know much about him at all, but I'm trying to learn what I can about
the man everyone talks so highly of.
My mom was going through some old pictures and found one of his grave marker and it had
all of his information on it, so I used the information and found this site. After
actually finding his name, I showed my mother and she started crying so hard. She
and I both really appreciate you creating this remembrance about him and all of the others
in Troop K.

"My Childhood Friend"
Posted By: J. C. Horton
Carver Joe and I went to first grade together and were friends up through high school.
We both went to Lakeview Baptist church and elementary school. He went by Joe
and not Carver. He was shy and quiet most of the time. He was a loyal friend
and a good person.
Joe was beloved by his family and friends. I still think of him and I when we
almost won an egg throwing contest at a picnic. At this picnic this was big deal
with big prizes. We came so close to winning. He was competitive, and I had to be
the one who missed the catch.
He was a real person with so much potential, so much life ahead and such a good friend.
Bod Bless Carver Joe Vaughan.
