You we our neighborhood's big brother

Gere was like everyone's big brother in our neighborhood when I was growing up on New York Avenue in the 50's and 60's. My mother and his were friends. I had little idea what Vietnam was about in the early sixties, but it was brought home when we heard that Gere was gone. Amongst those of us who are still around, you are still remembered with fondness, my friend.

Final Mission of 1LT Gerald W. Davidson

On June 29, 1964, a U.S. Army helicopter UH-1B (tail number 62-01919) “Smoke ship” from the 114th Assault Helicopter Company crashed and burned shortly after takeoff from a remote outpost in Kien Phong Province, RVN. The lead aircraft returned and found the crash site with no survivors. The lost crew reportedly made no radio transmissions before going down. They included aircraft commander 1LT Gerald W. Davidson, pilot WO1 Ralph A. Dunn, crew chief PFC Wayne A. Arakaki, and gunner PFC Everette L. Donaldson. [Taken from coffeltdatabase.org and vhpa.org]

What a joy...

Jerry was a dear friend to many and the first friend I made in Oak Ridge, TN when my family moved there in 1955. Our old gang from high school never was the same after we lost our sweet, kind and thoughtful Jerry. Sort of broke our collective heart. He was our best.

A brother I never had

Jerry was like a brother to me -- younger -- smarter. I loved him and his brother David. Now David is gone to be with Jerry. I miss both of you very much. Rest in Peace. Your sacrifice will never be forgotten.
