Jerry Dan Wells

Jerry and I joined the army on the buddy system, however, we were separated after AIT. He was sent to Nam and me to Pathfinder School. One of the hardest days of my life was when I stood on the beach at Cam Ranh Bay in Viet Nam where he drowned. He will always be my best buddy and is with me today.

Good Friend

jerry and I were next door neighbors and we had great childhood together, we had a park across the street from our homes and enjoyed every minute we could get outside . I learned of Jerry,s death while I was deployed in the Navy and it was the hardest time I have ever spent accepting someone death. He was truly a good guy and I would have traded places with him any day. His family is and was at the time deeply religious and I believe his death was accepted only because they knew he was with the Lord. Still miss you Jerry!!!!

Remembering An American Hero

Dear PFC Jerry Dan Wells, 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
