More detail on this person: Gerald (Jerry) Froman, after a courageous battle with cancer. He was a slick driver with the 282nd AHC Blackcats, and was shot down two months into his tour. After many surgeries, he recovered enough to live a full life with his wife Cindy and two children. He was a good friend to many people, and assisted countless veterans dealing with the VA in the Pensacola area. We have lost a good man and a true patriot.
