Master Cpl. Joe Arsenault to receive the Meritorious Service Medal for helping rescue three men from the freezing North Atlantic
Joe Arsenault hates the word hero. He especially gets uncomfortable when you call him one. But to many people, he was a hero on November 19, 2008. This flight engineer helped rescue three men from a sinking barge off the coast of Nova Scotia.
Now, Master Cpl. Joe Arsenault is receiving the service medal decoration. Labrador Morning's Colleen Connors spoke with him at the Goose Bay air base.
