RIDE DEDICATION SR North Fork Dedication

From a young age, Joe Theinert emulated soldiers for Halloween, high school reenactments, and through his vast knowledge of military history. With a long standing family history of service to our country, Joe grew up on Shelter Island with his two brothers Billy and Jimbo, mother Chrys Kestler, and father Jim Theinert.

As a high school sophomore on September 11, 2001, Joe truly realized the impact of a country at war. It left an indelible impression and solidified his determination to protect his country as his father’s FDNY friends and coworkers were killed that fateful day. Joe wrote, “There is nothing glorious about war but I will go to it to keep the people I love away from it. 9/11 NEVER FORGET.”

In 2008, Joe’s proudest moment was achieved when he received his commission as 2nd Lieutenant and graduated with his Bachelor of Arts degree in history from SUNY Albany. He received his active duty assignment to the 10th Mountain Division at Fort Drum assigned to the 1-71 CAV, Banshee Troop, 2nd Platoon. The new First Lieutenant deployed to Afghanistan in support of Operation Enduring Freedom on March 28, 2010.

On June 4, 2010, after undergoing hostile fire from rocket propelled grenades, Joe’s platoon continued on dismounted foot patrol when an IED detonated and killed Joe on impact. This heroic act saved the men of Joe’s platoon as no one else was physically harmed or killed.
