I live in Springfield and for years have run by the memorial on Hunter Village to Lt.Col. Dickerson and Marjorie Salamone. I've swept leaves and snow off the plaque; I've lifted the flags when they have been knocked down, but today, for some reason, it finally dawned on me to look up some information on these two people who lost their lives in service to our country. I knew I would be inspired, and I am. Blessings to the family.... I hope your lives are full and yet made fuller with the knowledge of what Lt. Col. Dickerson meant to you. I never met him, but his name on a plaque stands as a reminder of what true sacrifice means.

I consider Jerry a lifelong friend, even though we had lost contact over the years. Jerry and I had a special bond that began as a result of the integration of the Yazoo City public school system in the late 1960's. You see, I am African American, and during that time in our town it was rare for friends of different races to interact socially. Jerry and I played ball together and visited each other's houses. Jerry was always a leader and did not listen to some of his peers who frowned upon our friendship. You see, Jerry and I discovered many years ago that we had more in common than we had differences. Some people live a lifetime and never learn this lesson. Jerry had a heart of gold, and a tremendous dry wit. I have met a lot of smart people in my 25 years in corporate America, but Jerry is one of the brightest people that I have ever met. Jerry dreamed big and encouraged others to do so as well. My life has been enriched by having known him. My prayers and thoughts are with his family.

Jerry and I started as privates together in 1978, before he had met his wonderful wife Page. He was my original Army "buddy." Each day I see his picture hanging by my late Father's photo. I will never forget Jerry and what a great citizen of this Country he was. Now going on the 6th year later after his death, my eyes still become watery when I think of all the times Jerry and I spent together with the rest of the Army close knit band of brothers and sister. His death was not right, should not have been, but his wonderful and caring essence will never be forgotten. May God continue to watch over Page, Beth, and Will as they go on with their lives without him. Continue to miss you Jerry! Don

My family and I visited Washington D.C. for the first time and had a tour of the Pentagon arranged for us.  I was very touched by the 9/11 Memorial and we took a pencil rubbing of Jerry's name.  Each day we remember the surving family members in our prayers.  God Bless the USA

Share your feelings and memories of grief and sadness concerning the 9-11-2001 attack, or of positive memories.  If you knew this person, help us to build a small 'bio' of the person and share with us something about his/her life:

  • what kind of person he/she was, 
  • what nice points you remember about him/her, 
  • what kind of relationship you had with him/her, 
  • what you two perhaps did together, 
  • what he/she meant to you, 
  • or other things about him/her might be especially encouraging for other people.

This web site is intended solely as a means of allowing all of us to express our grief and sympathy in behalf of the people who lost their lives, and also our love and compassion towards those who lost loved ones and friends in the 9/11/01 tragedy. The site is strictly for memorial mentions of those who passed away in the tragedy, not of other people who have passed away.

Our hearts are very touched with concern in behalf of those people, and it is to them that we dedicate this web site. It is not our intent to venture into the realms of WHO should face judgement, to take responsibility for those terrible events, because we have no way of knowing for sure who all might fall into that category. Therefore, any letters or notes written passing judgment upon any person or group will not be published on this site. We do NOT want this site to be a base for expressions of hatred, but only for expressions of LOVE!

9-11Heroes.us is a personal effort, not a business, nor is the site dedicated to any specific person or persons. We will not post negative comments. Moreover, 9-11Heroes.us reserves the right to choose which comments to post and also to edit the comments for spelling, punctuation, grammar, or edit comments that are unkind or offensive in some manner. We are maintaining this site with our own money and time. We try to keep the advertisements to a minimum and we try to make them as unobtrusive as possible. The revenue goes back to maintaining this site.

Thank you for your understanding in these matters.
