"Joe Jackson was a Gila River tribal member who was mostly raised on the Yakama reservation community of White Swan. At the age of 12 he came to live with his foster father, Shawn Marceau, a Blackfeet tribal member. "He accepted me as his father and that's the way it came down," Shawn Marceau said. Marceau, his father, grandfather and great-grandfather all served in the Marines, and soon after coming to live with Marceau, Joe began dressing up as a Marine in imitation of them." from Daily KOS
Joe Jackson received the Purple Heart, posthumously. He also received the Combat Action Ribbon, a Good Conduct Medal, National Defense Service Medal, Afghanistan Campaign Service Medal with the Bronze Star, Global War on Terror Service Medal, Sea Service Ribbon, and the NATO Non-Article 5, ISAF Medal. Thank you Joe Jackson for your Service and your sacrifice, in serving your Country with Honor.
May Joe Jackson's family, friends, Tribe,
and his Brothers in the Corps,
be comforted in their grief.
