To the family of SGM Aucoin: Unfortunately, I never met you, Joe's family. Joe worked for me when I was the Assistant USPFO for Texas and later as USPFO. The SGM was one of the most honorable, professional and ethical soldiers I have had the priviledge to be acquainted with. Joe was truly THE LOGISTICIAN. He was a walking encyclopedia of knowledge. Whenever he inspected a unit, he was thorough and called the "shots" like he saw them. Stearn in keeping with his military background, he always sat down with a young supply Seargeant, and taught him the correct way to do things. Because of that, he was highly respected throughout the Army National Guard and active Army as well. He will be sorely missed.
