Mr. Campos, I just read your post. I was Jerry’s wife and mother to his daughter, Tracey. I was wondering if you were the Marine that visited Jerry’s mom and Dad on your way home from Vietnam. If so, thank you so much for taking the time to stop by their house to tell them the story of Jerry’s last day. It meant so much to us. If it wasn’t you and you think you might know who it was, I would like to thank him. Thank you for your service.

Honoring Jerry Waller

It was 50 years ago today that you lost your life on the first day of Operation Union II. Forty-two Marines from 3/5 and attached personnel lost their lives that day. Even though I only met you one time, the memory of that time has forever been etched in my mind. It occurred late one afternoon near the end of Union I. Your company & the company (Mike) that I was attached to set up in the same nighttime position. Late in the afternoon we had mail call. Your received a Red Cross telegram stating that your wife had given birth at a baby. Less than a week later you lost your life. I will never forget the joy that you had when you received that telegram.

Each year 3/5 has a reunion and invites a family of a KIA to be honored. This year we honored your family. That baby, Tracey, mentioned in the telegram just turned 50 on May 12. She was at the reunion along with her son and daughter. Your wife, Evelyn, was there along with your brothers, Jim and Joe, your sisters, Marsha and Margaret. It was an honor to tell those in attendance the story surrounding your death. You have not been forgotten.

Rest in Peace, Jerry.
