Comments:I have no relationship to Jerry Wayne Osborn, just want to say that it's too bad all those people died in Vietnam. It's sad the hopes of so many were not fullfilled. <br />
Good luck to all of you.

Comments:he held me as a baby. my mother held his death every year as reverent more so because she raised him from a child. I read his letters from viet nam to my mom when I was a teen and realized the pain and heartache my mom suffered from such a nonsense war. his life was cut short in the wink of eye and what for? it solved nothing except suffering for the families.

Comments:Jerry was originally assigned to the aircraft was crewchief on, in the Firebirds for several weeks then at his request he transferred to one of the slick platoons. I did not know him well but do remember that he never had the chance to grow old.
