I knew Jerry in school...he was on my little league baseball team...very good 3rd basemen with homerun power. he was a great guy who liked to laugh and was very good with the junior high and high school ladies. smoked my first cig with Jerry. he started running with a wilder crowd in high school while I was playing sports...and after we graduated I lost track of Jerr. I was in the Navy in 1969 when he was killed...I remember not really believing it had happened to someone I knew. what a waste. RIP Hero.

“You are Remembered”
Peace and condolence, to the family and friends. "He which hath no stomach to this fight let him depart. But we in it shall be remembered. We few, we happy few, we band of brothers!! For he today, that sheds his blood with me, shall always be my brother.” Rest in peace brave soldier, you have not been forgotten. (W.Shakespeare) May God Bless You for your Sacrifice!!!

Just remembering Jerry's wonderful smile, great laugh and the good times we had. If anyone who knew him sees this please tell me anything you can about him. I think about him often.
