Served briefly with Jerry @ Fort Benning in the late 60's. And then worked with Jerry in the 80's with Days Inn of America where we both were Polygraph Examiners and Regional Security Director's. Jerry was an excellent investigator, a true gentleman and a very good friend. Condolences to his family. RIP my friend!

A special thanks to Carl Craig's follow-ups!
