Joe was drafted in December 1942. After his basic military training he was sent to England and assigned to A Company 116th Infantry. He trained with that unit for the planned amphibious assault that was to be part of the invasion of occupied France. It was while participating in that assault that PFC Pullen was shot in head and killed in action during the landing on 6 Jun 1944.
PFC Pullen was repatriated and re-interred in Elmwood Cemetery in Birmingham, Alabama.
