Trevor Philip Joseph, 33, of Collierville, TN, passed away heroically while serving his country on Thursday, 26 September 2019 in Fort Polk, LA. He was born on 7 May 1986 in Orlando, FL to his parents, Peter and Nancy Joseph. In 2003, he met the love of his life, Erin Joseph, and so began the sweetest, truest love story ever told. They married on 1 June 2008 and recently celebrated their 11th year wedding anniversary.
MAJ Joseph was a 2004 graduate of Houston High School, in Collierville, TN, and excelled there in both his academics as well as on the soccer field. He was a loyal Tennessee Vols fan and attended the University of Tennessee Knoxville until 2008, when he was commissioned as a medical services officer in the US Army. Soon after, he began his extraordinary career as a MEDEVAC helicopter pilot.
MAJ Joseph was the Commander of “Cajun Dustoff” MEDEVAC unit in Fort Polk, LA at the time of his death. He was an exceptional leader and courageous aviator who was always proud to go above and beyond for his soldiers and never hesitated at any mission, no matter the risk. Over his 11 year career, Major Joseph deployed twice to Afghanistan (2010 and 2017) and was awarded multiple honors. He was also one of four soldiers who were awarded “Rescue Of the Year” for their bravery and courage shown during a difficult MEDEVAC mission while in Afghanistan in 2016.
