Craighead County,
Arkansas

Lieutenant Colonel Jerry D. Dickerson, United States Army, 41, of Durant, Mississippi, was working in the Pentagon when the terrorists attacked on 11 September 2001 and was officially confirmed dead as a result of hostile action on 24 September 2001.

Lieutenant Colonel Dickerson’s source of comfort and great pride was always his family. His wife Page and their two children, Beth 15 and Will 11, survive him.
