My aunt was dating Jerry when he shipped off for Vietnam. Upon his disappearance, she was forced to move on. It was 7 years later that she realized he was still alive, but at the time had already married my uncle. Jerry moved on as well after his return. Marrying, having children and continuing his aviation career, more recently flying for a corporate airline. All this despite not being able to lift his arms above his shoulders due to the horrible crap he went through for all those years. Amazing man, and talking to him is like talking to someone your own age, no matter what your age is...hard to explain, but simply the one of the coolest people I know or have ever met. Here's his bio.
