Visiting the memorial

Dear family of Jerry W. Hammock,
I am a student from Perimeter School (Georgia) who was D.C. this week. Today each student was given a Carnation to lay at the foot of the Vietnam memorial. We were instructed to choose a soldier to thank and lay the flower in their honor. As I was walking along the memorial I prayed for God to lead me to the soldier that I was to thank and pray for their family. I soon had a gut feeling to stop at this particular panel on the wall. As I was looking at the panel I saw Hammock’s name pop out and felt a calling to lay the flower at the foot of this panel. As I knelt there thinking of the sacrifice that he made and his family made for this country, I was deeply moved. I would like you to know that I am extremely grateful for the sacrifice that his family made alongside him. I will keep Hammock’s family in my prayers. God bless!

Remembering An American Hero

Dear CPL Jerry Wendell Hammock, 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, Sir

Curt Carter

I Remember May 17, 1968

I was with Hammock the day he was killed. We were next to each other during the assault. I think of him often.
