I have been knowing Jerry for at least 30 years or so. He watched me grow up. He was my neighbor and also he was my friend. He was, like the good person he was always there when I needed help, or anybody as far as that goes. He served in the U.S. Army during the Vietnam Conflict where he was a tank commander. This site is the very least I could do to help keep his memory alive, and to recognize and honor the Service he did for our country during the Vietnam Conflict.
Thank you Sgt. Jerry Isham....Welcome Home

Sgt Isham, you were called to serve your Country in Vietnam,
You did not question or ask why...
You went and did your duty without hesitation...
You served with honor and never did once quiver,
at the sights most would have shivered.
Sgt Isham, You knew the meaning of God, Duty, Honor and Country..
You did not run from it, You tackled it head on.
You are missed, and though you are not here with us today,
Your sacrifices you did and all that you have done,
are not forgotten.
From the heart of a brother-in-arms, Thank you and Welcome Home!!!
