Birth: Jun. 6, 1975
Somerset County
New Jersey, USA
Death: May 29, 2007, Iraq

Staff Sgt. Weiglein of Audubon, NJ. had been in the Army for 12 years. He had moved around a lot, South Korea, Kansas, Kuwait, Tennessee and Georgia. His last assignment was as an infantry staff sergeant, based with the 10th Mountain Division at Fort Drum, N.Y. Before moving to Fort Drum, he was working as a recruiter, but he longed to return to the regular infantry. Before he was a sergeant in Iraq, he was a small town kid. He was a Boy Scout, a soccer player, and a fisherman. The Army gave Joe a sense of purpose. He was very proud of his mission. Joe made a special stop at Haviland Avenue Elementary where he went as a youngster before going back to Iraq. The students had adopted him and his unit. He patiently fielded questions from 256 curious young minds. As a die hard Eagles fan he attended the Eagles-Giants playoff game when he was last home in January. His military awards include the Purple Heart and the Army Commendation Medal with two oak leaf clusters. Joseph and his wife, Jennifer, had been married for 4 1/2 years. He was 31.
