Joseph "Joe" Sarnoski
It would be hard to have come from more humble beginnings than Joe Sarnoski, growing up in the countryside near Carbondale, Pennsylvania. The fifth of eventually seventeen children, the family grew and sold its own fruits and vegetables to supplement the coal mining income of his father. Joe was never one for that life, and like his future pilot Jay Zeamer, showed early on what kind of drive he had to ensure it would not be his life. It would lead him to the highest of heights, literally and figuratively, as one of only two bombardiers to receive the Medal of Honor, and a place on the most highly decorated air crew in American history.
