    Dear LCPL Jerry Wayne Dunigan, sir

    As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for your sacrifice made on behalf of our wonderful country. The youth of today could gain much by learning of heroes such as yourself, men and women whose courage and heart can never be questioned.

    May God allow you to read this, and may He allow me to someday shake your hand when I get to Heaven to personally thank you. May he also allow my father to find you and shake your hand now to say thank you; for America, and for those who love you.

    With respect, and the best salute a civilian can muster for you, Sir

    Curt Carter
  • In My Memories

    Posted on 10/26/11 - by Sue Mott
    Jerry Dunigan was my cousin. I have lots of good memories of Jerry growing up. He was a prankster. When we were smaller, it was hiding behind something and popping out to scare the daylights out of the girls or waving his red shirt at his dad's big bull while we were picking blackberries in the pasture. He was always getting into trouble at school with Mr. Jones, the history teacher. I can never forget the pranks he played on the owner of the Dog 'n Suds drive-in restaurant (locked him in the storage building one night). When he graduated, he and some of his friends decided to enlist and serve our country. It was just natural that they join the Marines-the toughest of all. He was sent to Vietnam, wounded, returned to the fighting and not long afterward lost his life. Jerry will always have a special place in my heart.
