Like Theresa, my first connection and meeting Joe was when we were stationed at the Fontenet Sub-Post in France during the early 1960's. It seems my coming from Vermont and Joe having spent time there especially with his Dad was the glue it took. Years passed and often wondering about Joe we finally reconnected in January of 2012. Since there have been many emails and phone calls, most remembered have been my recent during delivery runs to NYC. I could always count on Joe's experience and knowledge of the City having lived and worked there so many years. It is unfortunate we were out of touch for so many years, but very thankful for being reunited. May God Bless You and your family. Peace be with you!
Also, on behalf of the FBF (Fontenet Brotherhood Family) I wish to offer this poem written by a fellow high school classmate and dear friend:
A Moment Of Silence
A moment of silence is good for the heart.
I breaks down the barriers that tear us apart.
It gives us the will to remember the ill.
It relaxes our minds; gives our body the skill that we need to survive, like a queen bee in her beehive.
So relax and remember: A moment of silence should always be Loving and tender.
Peggy (Churchill) L'Ecuyer, HHS Class of 1959, White River Jct., Vermont.

Theresa Mousseau

I met Joe in France in December 1961. He had been coerced into babysitting and shopping with me and my fourteen month old while my husband, also Joe, slept after a nightshift of MP duty. The two Joes had been room mates. My first impression was, "Oh boy, this one is trouble!" , and he was. A nineteen year old, full of himself, handsome guy in uniform.

Seven months later the Mousseaus were back in the States and as with most, military connections were lost.

Fast forward to 2011. When the phone rang, before robo calls, I answered to hear a New York accent ask, "Would this be Terry Mousseau?". Terry was a flashback. Said " Might be. ". That was the start of a friendship rekindled. Very few days passed over the next nine years without a word or twenty. The change from wild child of the '60s to responsible adult when he met Diane and the girls was a story he shared with relish. We kept Amazon Kindle in business earning frequent user status.

As a final salute to my Best Buddy, that bottle of rose` is waiting by the babbling brook. C U there.

On behalf of all Veterans and the Fontenet Brotherhood Family,we wish to offer this piece as an expression of gratitude for Joseph A. Branch's service to our Country.
GOD's Garden,
GOD looked around His garden and He found an empty place. And then He looked down upon the earth, and saw your tired face. He put His arms around you, and lifted you to rest. GOD's garden must be beautiful, He always takes the best.He knew that you were suffering, He knew you were in pain. He knew that you would never get well upon this earth again. He saw the road was getting rough, and the hills were hard to climb, so He closed your weary eyelids, and whispered, "Peace be Thine". It broke our hearts to lose you, but you didn't go alone, for part of us went with you, the day GOD called you home.
May you rest in peace, Joseph A. Branch, our Warrior and Fontenet Brother In Arms.
Nicholas F. Del Prete
Fontenet Brotherhood Family
