Joe was the Wing Maintenance Officer of CAF SoCal Wing from 1983-1998 and again 2007-2010 as well as serving as the Wing Leader from 1999-2002. He was the Crew Chief of our SNJ-4 “Blue Bird” #N6411D which he brought back to flying condition from a truck load full of parts and pieces.

Most recently, Joe has also been our Wing’s Training Officer, helping to mentor and guide our Wing Cadets over years.
