A resident of Baltimore, Maryland, Joe moved there in 1981. His interest in the U.S. Army's 29th Infantry Division developed because many of his neighbors served in it. In 2004 he established the 29th Division Archives at Baltimore's Fifth Regiment Armory, which is now a major research center for World War II scholars.
