    You were one of the brave that answered the call. You honored us by your service and sacrifice. We now honor you each time we stand and sing the words “THE LAND OF THE FREE AND THE HOME OF THE BRAVE”. Rest in Peace and Honor Jerry.

    Jerry and I went to Basic and AIT together at Fort Lewis. We were good friends and did lots together until we arrived to VietNam. Jerry was put into "C" company of the Wolfhounds and I was placed in "D" company. We were really bummed at the time but communicated by letters.
    One day in Oct. of 1968 Jerrys Captain returned my letter I wrote Jerry telling me the news of his death. Very sad news. We even went to Nam together. I miss Jerry, he was truly a great guy and a great soldier.
  • Remembering An American Hero

    Dear PFC Jerry Wayne Snyder, 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
