Comments: Hi,
I'm looking for any information on "Jerry the Tramp". That is how he
signed his paintings. He was a soldier
that served in Korea along with my dad, Chaplain Gerald Weaver in
1953 or so. He used to paint naked ladies on the lockers for the
soldiers.

My dad got tired of seeing all the scantily clad paintings, so
he asked him to paint something more inspiring. Jerry painted a head
of Christ, which my dad used to decorate the chapel tent used out in
the "field" of Korea. My dad was stationed near the 38th parallel with
the 57th field artillery of the 7th Infantry Division.

When he came back to the USA, he had the painting hanging in his
office study for many years. He finally gave the painting to me a few
years ago, but, I don't have any place for it. I'm an artist myself and
don't have enough room for my own paintings.

My dad is 91 years old now and still doing well. I asked him if he
knew more about Jerry the Tramp, and he didn't remember his real
name, or where he might be now.

I would like to sell the painting of his head of Christ, but, wanted to
know the historic story about it. If you know anything about "Jerry,
the Tramp" soldier artist, please contact me!

City and State: EAGLE RIVER WI

Unit: 57TH FIELD ARTILLERY BATTALION-7TH DIVISION

Service or Relationship: Army Veteran

Comments: Landed at Inchon, war was going on, went to 38th parallel. do not remember dates. was there 14 months. war ended while i was there. i took job of forward observer because it payed $45.00 a month more. I would like to know who else was in my battery, battery B? All my gun commanders (6) were black! sharp guys!

Keywords: memory is sketchy. remember my buddy ? Smock from Omaha. Swam in Inchon river. many fire missions. ears are shot. Big guns off the coast put the enemy in their place. strung the DMZ barbed wire after the "police action" so called.
