WWII Vet Jerry Yellin
Today, Jerry cares for the new generation of veterans who are battling post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), by sharing his story of PTSD after witnessing 16 World War II fighter pilots, all close friends of his, die in battle. In the video, World War II veterans visit Iwo Jima for the 70th anniversary in commemoration of the end of World War II.
Jerry’s drive to succeed in his mission is as strong today as it has ever been. However, the mission today is one of peace and healing. The waste of life that is war has left countless living casualties walking amounst us. Jerry serves as a tower of strength and humanity, offering a lucid perspective into the life of a soldier and a hopeful path to healing the mental wounds of war. He speaks to soldiers, families, and children about how his extraordinary life experiences have shaped his life and driven him to share his story of human compassion and equality.
