    Today marks the 50th Anniversary of the crash of helo YK-13. It makes me sad to think of how much you & the four other crew members have missed in the world since your deaths. You ALL are in my thoughts & prayers and I know you are with God in heaven. You were a brave Marine and deserve so much honor, respect, and Thanks for paying with the ultimate price...your life.
    Rest in peace with the Angels. ~Aggie~

    I was a tot when you served and lost your life. I have fuzzy memories and stories told by my Mother and Nana. Both are gone now and I am finally getting the answers they never got. Your family loves and misses you. I hope that someone reads this that knew you and could contact me at fairlaneranch@verizon.net and share any information about you. I think I am the only family member left and would love to hear about your life. God Bless you Jerry. All my love, Your Cousin Jim

  • YOU WILL ALWAYS BE REMEMBERED...

    Dear Jerry...today marks the 48th anniversary of your death from injuries you received in the crash of helicopter YK-13 (02/05/1968).
    This past Oct (2015), Freehold High School Class of 1965 had its 50th class reunion weekend. On that beautiful fall Saturday morning, your classmates gathered at St. Rose of Lima Cemetery to dedicate a gravestone that your classmates purchased for you. The ceremony, with Marine Corp honor guard, bagpipes, remembrance speeches and taps was beautiful and touching, and left us all with the deep feeling of pride for knowing you and having you as part of our class.
    A man is not truly dead as long as there is someone to remember him...please know Jerry, that you are truly loved and remembered by so many of your friends and classmates. I know you are with God....Rest in peace, Cpl.Jerry Conner ... Semper Fi

Brought to you by the organization that built The Wall, the Vietnam Veterans Virtual Memorial Wall is dedicated to honoring, remembering and sharing the legacies of all those who died in the Vietnam War. Here you can go beyond the names on The Wall to see the faces, share the stories and read the remembrances posted by friends, neighbors, classmates and family members.

All of these photos will be showcased in The Education Center at The Wall on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. To learn more about the effort to collect these photos and ensure their faces will never be forgotten, visit www.buildthecenter.org.
