    Joe is a close friend of Clarence Smoyer, and was featured in the NYT bestselling book, "Spearhead". He will be missed by many.

    "There are many things that could be said about Joseph Caserta, a World War II veteran who fought in Europe while serving as a tank commander with the U.S. Army’s 3rd Armored Division.

    Those who knew him well recalled that he was brave, humble and would give his fellow soldiers, veterans and family all that he had.

    And that was a lot.

    On Friday night, at the age of 98, the American hero died peacefully at home surrounded by his family.

    To those who knew Caserta, he will forever be remembered as a larger-than-life hero who fought valiantly for his country, a decorated soldier awarded the Purple Heart, Bronze Star and scores of other commendations.

    “He was unbelievably humble and kind. He was always a giving man,” said the youngest of Caserta’s four sons, Jess Caserta."
