We Salute You: Joe Merlina

Every day ABC27 honors a military hero.

Joe Merlina served in the U.S. Navy from 1955-1959 aboard the USS Harold J. Ellison. He maintained the radar “that controlled the big guns.”

Joe’s favorite saying is that “he served when the ships were made out of wood and the men were made out of steel.”

We salute you and thank you for your service!
