B CO, 3RD BN, 39TH INF RGT, 9 INF DIV
From Shreve, Ohio
14 January 1947 - 12 July 1967
He married my sister Linda Sue McVay in May 1966. Right after marriage Jerry had to go to war, so we never got to know him that well. He came home on leave one time before he left for Vietnam and his life ended there. But even though we didn't get to know him that well, Jerry will always be our hero. I know Jerry did his best for his country and he wasn't a hero till he gave it his all ... and that's why now we can say "He is our hero".
From his sister-in-law,
Jerry, I just wanted to let you know that I was thinking of you as like a lot of other times but today to give you a big thanks for helping give my family and friends a safe place to live. I'm so proud to let each and every one know what a great brother-in-law you were.
You are loved and missed by each and every one.
Love from your sister-in-law
