Jerry and a bunch of us from North East used to play baseball on the fields behind Heard Memorial School in North East. He was a good pitcher and taught me to throw a better curve ball. I still think of Jerry often.

Jerry and I took AIT at Ft. Knox together and was surprised when we both were assigned to K Troop in Sept. of 1968.  On the date of his death, he had returned to our Area of Operation and the chopper put down near my track.  I greeted him and he hopped on board.  He was returning from being wounded and was still bandaged up.  He ask me to take him to his platoon location which I did.  I heard later on that day that he was one of the three K Troopers KIA.

I will never forget this day and the sight of you three laying on the ground.  I only wish that I could have spared the end results.

Gerald and myself arrived in country on the same day. Six of us came together, only three of us returned. Gerald was a great guy and missed everyday.

Jerry:  I remember when you came back to K Troop after being wounded.  The chopper landed and you got on my track where I took you to your platoon.  Hours later after a battle, I learned that you had been killed.  I still today blame myself for being a part of you dying.  I wished I'd not taken you to your platoon that day.
Your buddy.
