Captain Jerry Yellin flew the last combat mission of World War II over Japan and returned home a hero, but led a dark life of survivor's guilt and daily thoughts of suicide. After marrying, learning TM®, and raising four sons, Yellin was forced to face his enemy once again when his youngest son moved to Japan and married the daughter of a Kamikaze pilot.
Jerry's Last Mission is a firsthand account of that journey from hate to love, and enemies to family.
Jerry's passion for helping fellow veterans find healing through TM was a driving force in the creation of DLF's Veterans program, and we are pleased to host a virtual Q & A about Jerry's story and our work serving veterans during the film's premiere week.
DLF CEO Bob Roth will share memories of working with Jerry, along with DLF Veterans program partners, including Ed Schloeman of Operation Warrior Shield, and more.
We hope you enjoy this heartwarming film and can join us Thursday to discuss Jerry's remarkable life of service.
The free virtual screening of the premiere of Jerry's Last Mission continues through Veteran's Day week, November 9-13.
