You can read Sgt. Crisostomo's story here.
And it is quite a story, indeed.

Farewell, and Walk with God, Joe Sinbad

These brave men and women sacrifice so much in their lives
so that others may enjoy the freedoms we get to enjoy everyday.
For that, I am proud to call them Hero.

I am the niece of Joe "Sinbad", and I have to say that I am proud and honored to have him as an Uncle. He was always laughing, smiling, and so full of life. He had a way of making you laugh constantly while in his presence. I remember a time when he just showed up at my sisters house in Las Vegas. He and Uncle Frank decided they were going to hop on a plane and go to Vegas (like many other journeys Uncle Joe spoke of). He said they would show up at the airport and look at each other and say..."where are we going". I laughed and I told him that he had such a free spirit and that I loved it.
R.I.P. ~ Uncle Joe, you are loved and truly missed. My dad (Vicente Crisostomo - brother), keeps your picture up with the American and Guam Flag around you. He misses you bula (a lot)!!! Gone but never forgotten, till we all meet again!
