Jerry W. Kerr
Sgt, U.S. Marine Corps | 1967-1971
I vote to honor the sacrifice my husband made while serving in the U.S. Marine Corps. He served for 4 years, had a tour of Vier Nam for 13 months, and died from Agent Orange at the age of 68. He was a proud Marine, loved his country, and loved what being a Veteran stood for. I encourage others to vote and to Thank a Veteran whenever possible.

New Lexington, Ohio
Gavin, my sister's only son, was determined to make things right after 9/11. He joined the 82nd Airborne and was Killed In Action on June 10, 2003 in Iraq. I'm an "old vet", why do we have to lose the young ones?

Bruce Zachrich was a very proud veteran who fought in Vietnam and was buried last year after passing away in his uniform. Bruce was my cousin and very patriotic. He even worked as a poll worker as I work at the board of elections and needed someone. I find myself very proud when I cast my vote each election using the opportunity that I have been given by many men and women such as Bruce.

. He was very patriotic and my family was very honored & proud that he wanted to serve his country. In high school he talked about joining the Marines. On October 3, 1966 he arrived in Vietnam Nam and was killed on November 3, 1966. So proud of my brother to sacrifice his life for our great country.
