Jerry Palma was my classmate, my ranger buddy and my friend. He loved being a soldier and he was good at it. At the time of his death, Jerry was a cavalry troop commander in the 11th Armored Cavalry Regiment, a job to which he had aspired for years. He was an American hero who will remain alive forever in the hearts and minds of the friends he left behind.
