On Saturday night, Feb. 25th my friend Jere Beery had his house burn to the ground. Jere and his wife lived in a modest home in the north Georgia mountain and being off the beaten path it took the fire department 25 minutes to get there; needless to say, by the time they arrived, there wasn't anything left.
Jere served in the U.S. Navy in Vietnam on a river patrol boat where he and his crew were in a battle that put him in the hospital from wounds he recieved for 2 years.
Several years later later he went on to work as a stuntman in the movies.
Jere gave up his movie career to devote all of his time to helping disabled verterens, which he still does to this day.
At the time of the fire, Jere was recovering from a broken back from a recent car wreck, he has lost everything in the fire...even his dog.
I've know Jere for 37 years and always known him to be the first one to step up and help others in need, he has been doing that for Vets and others for the decades I've known him. If you are able I'm asking if you can please step up and help him in his time of need...any amount helps
this is a picture of his home Saturday night...
