Sad News: Joseph Lodato, 4402-V now SK (posted July 1, 2018)
We were recently informed of the passing of longtime SoWP member Joseph Lodato by his son. He was 95. Born in New Orleans, Joe was a graduate of the Naval Radio School at Gallups Island and served his country as a radio operator on Liberty ships in the Merchant Marine. After the war he went on to a distinguished career in electronics, retiring from Naval Electronics System Command after 24 years. Our condolences go out to his family and friends.
