I'm named after Jerry

My name is Brendan Jerome McEvoy and Jerry was my father's best friend. I only heard a few stories about Jerry and it was likely due to the pain everyone in Mamaroneck feels about his death. My father passed away in 2006 (lung cancer) and I would love to learn more about Jerry. Please email me your memories.

Thoughts of Jerry

Your friends from the class of 1968- Villanova will always love you. Every time we get together we always hoist a drink in your honor.

Jerry on the way to Fort Dix

I remember Jerry. Memorable, confident; true leadership qualities. Despite the tough wakeup call we all had on the way from Philadelphia AFEES and at Fort Dix in the fall of 1968, Jerry could keep us laughing and having fun. Though we both ended-up in Vietnam after Basic and OCS, I was the lucky one: I can still remember him and smile...

Jerry, you'll never be forgotten

Knew Jerry from Mamaroneck/Winged Foot. Jerry went Army and I went Navy. I made it back and Jerry did not. Except for his golf swing, he was a shining example of class to all who knew him. God bless Martin (Jerry) Keogh.

What a damn waste of a good man!

Jerry was a man who was right with the world. Until the damn powers that be decided to send him and so many others like him to fight in Viet Nam. I don't believe that Viet Nam was worth one American life.

We made it thru OCS together and I and some thirty others "the fortunate few" were diverted to Korea after the Pubelo Incident.

Jerry, of course, never made it out of Viet Nam.

I still grieve for the waste of human life in that
"God-awful" conflict. It is now something of a badge of courage to have served in Viet Nam and made it back home.

What a damn waste of many good men!
