11E20: Armor Crewman“I will remember Francis P. Jelinek.  My husband Francis(Frank) P. Jelinek (14E-92) was wounded on January 26, 1967 by sniper fire while disarming a mine. He was shot nine times, he survived, but died of his injuries on June 23, l993. He was a perfect husband and wonderful father. We miss him everyday of our lives. I cherish all the memories of the life we shared. He was never bitter and always said he would do it all again. He loved the Army and his country and was very proud to have served. He is my personal Hero, not only for his service to our country, but the way he lived his life after. Enduring many surgeries and daily pain without complaining. I am so proud to have been his wife and look forward to the day I will join him in heaven. I will love him forever
