Damn the bad luck.

Fair Winds and Following Seas for you, former US Navy SEAL Joe Baker.

Condolences to his Brother-in-Arms, Friends, and Family.

Maybe a picture of him?

Respectfully,

All-

The service is being held this Sunday, 22May, in Harrisonburg, VA. I'm awaiting specifics from Joe's sister and will post same when I know more.

Two SOCNET Team Guys are coordinating a memorial gift (flowers, etc.) I'll let them post details as they see fit.

Joe was building a showbiz career as actor and tech advisor. The photo below is a scene from 'Afghan Knights.'

NO No No ...this really hurts!!!! Joe and I worked together on the same team as bodyguards in San Diego and Mexico. We were close when we worked together and always kept in touch a couple times a year. Words cannot express how horrible I feel right now.
RIP my friend I will miss you!!

There is no need to donate to socnet for memorial items. It's taken care of by the BTDT's.

RIP

Memorial Service:

Sunday, 22 May
3:00 pm

Kyger Funeral Home
3173 Spotswood Trail
Harrisonburg, VA 22801

Map

Ranger Charlie and I will be there. PM me if you have any specific questions.

Donations:

Joey had no insurance, so a memorial fund is being set up for his wife at Navy Federal Credit Union.
Here's the info from Joe's family:

Friday after 2pm, a memorial fund will be set up to help Krista, wife of our departed dear friend Joe who died suddenly at home. If you would like to make donations and/or in lieu of flowers, Navy Federal Credit Union will have a memorial fund under the name of Joe Baker (after 2pm Friday). Access number for referencing this account will be posted tomorrow on Joe's ******** Wall. Navy Federal's customer service is open 24/7 and their phone number is 1-800-336-3333
