Major General Jerry Curry
Jerry R. Curry is a statesman, a courageous soldier, a diplomat, and a government leader. Curry is a man of great intelligence, integrity, honesty, and proven character. He is a person who has taken a stand for his country and devoted his life in its service. He is a person who has lived out in practice what others just seem to talk about.
Jerry was born into humble beginnings--the son of a steel worker--and like most Americans has worked hard to better himself. He recognizes that only through the unique opportunities offered by this nation was he able to succeed. He enlisted in the U.S. Army as a Private during the Korean War and rose to the rank of a two star Major General--an uncommon achievement and a near impossibility for a soldier of mixed European, African and Native American ancestry. To find out about Jerry, go to his "GenerallySpeaking" blog at generallyspeaking.curryforamerica.com. Also find some of his published work on Human Events.
