Saying Thanks to “Sarge”

Joseph “Sarge” Komola served our nation with distinction in the United States Army and the United States Army Reserve for over 40 years, including deployments in Vietnam and the Middle East during Operation Desert Storm.

In his civilian life, he has been a leading advocate for motorcycle and traffic safety. Over the past several years he has helped to organize and conduct major events such as Nelson’s Run, and has been a major force at the state House in securing positive changes for safety.

Last Friday I had the honor of presenting Sarge with a Senate Citation recognizing his remarkable efforts to make the roadways we travel safer for all of us.

Below is a photo of the citation presentation taken at Wilmington Town Hall:
