Taps: Joseph M. Jagielski Jr.
Courtesy of his son, Jim


On September 16, 2011, Joseph M. Jagielski, Jr. (MM 2/C and having served on the USS Laffey, DD-724 from December 1951 to April 1955), passed away after a battle with pneumonia.

My Dad was extremely proud of his time in the Navy, and proud of the Laffey and all his shipmates. He enjoyed attending the reunions whenever possible and frequently remarked that his years in the Navy and on the Laffey were some of the best years of his life.

I was, and am, truly honored to have that tough ol' shellback as my Father.
