By TLB Contributing Author & TLBTV Show Host: Bill Muckler
Jerry Byrne is a combat Viet Nam Veteran who served in Kilo Company, 3rdBattalion, 7th Marines in 1966-1967.
Jerry has three brothers who also earned the title of United States Marine. His twin brother, John, and another brother were in combat at the same time in Viet Nam.
Jerry’s book, Twin Marines in Hell is the powerful story about the bond and experiences of identical twin brothers from the age of innocence, to Parris Island USMC Boot camp to the harsh realities of war. It is a unique perspective revealing the insanity of being a Marine Corps grunt fighting in the jungles of Vietnam.
Jerry was also in a CAP Unit outside Marine Air Group 36 in Chu Lai, Vietnam, where the picture on the front cover of his book was taken with his twin brother John on their 21st birthday.
From Combat Marine to Author and Lecturer:
Jerry, like many of the combat veterans of then and today still wakes up in a cold sweat from those vivid nightmares which are in a class by themselves. It shows how memories of that experience are always on your mind. His twin, John passed away at the age of 56 from cancer caused by Agent Orange which was a toxic defoliate sprayed in many of the combat areas in Vietnam.
After his service in the USMC, Jerry worked in the Elevator Industry, retiring after 35 years when he wrote his story. He is active in a variety of veteran’s organizations where he speaks about his Vietnam experience to high school students and many other groups.

The Liberty Beacon Project is now expanding at a near exponential rate, and for this we are grateful and excited! But we must also be practical. For 7 years we have not asked for any donations, and have built this project with our own funds as we grew. We are now experiencing ever increasing growing pains due to the large number of websites and projects we represent. So we have just installed donation buttons on our websites and ask that you consider this when you visit them. Nothing is too small. We thank you for all your support and your considerations … TLB
