We Salute You: Joe Jerome

June 10, 2019 05:28 PM

NewsChannel 13 salutes USMC Gunnery Sergeant Joe Jerome of Westport, New York – with ties to both Gloversville and Warren County.

He joined the Marines in 1939 – and was in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii when the first wave of Japanese planes bombed.

He later worked his way up in the military and was wounded three times.

Thank you for your service.
