Birth: Jun. 4, 1963
Fall River
Bristol County
Massachusetts, USA
Death: Sep. 1, 2003, Iraq

Army Staff Sgt. Camara was assigned to the 115th Military Police Company, U.S. Army National Guard, Cranston, Rhode Island. Camara was one of two soldiers who were killed when their vehicle was struck by an improvised explosive device on Main Supply Route Tampa, south of Baghdad. Joseph was a quiet, funny man who had a calming effect on the people he encountered in his four years as a patrol officer with the New Bedford Police Department. He started his career in the police department late, at 36. He saw what was happening in the city, and he thought he could make a difference. Joseph loved Christmas. At parties, he would be the man in the Santa hat, starting a conga line. He was also an avid gun collector who loved hunting, fishing and boating. He enjoyed taking self-defense classes at Kwon's Tae-Kwon-Do and loved being with his children and dogs. Joseph is survived by his wife, Ana, and three children.
