WWII Vet Jerry Yellin
Jerry worked with 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 this 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 was as strong on his last day as it had ever been during his journey. However, the mission today is one of peace and healing. The waste of life that is war has left countless living casualties walking amongst us. Jerry served 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 spoke to soldiers, families, and children about how his extraordinary life experiences shaped his life and drove him to share his story of human compassion and equality.
