Angels of God, pray for
Jerry was assigned to the 2nd Battalion, 28th Infantry Regiment, 172nd Separate Infantry Brigade, Grafenwoehr, Germany.

Military officials describe Jerry as a superb non-commissioned officer, always leading from the front and demonstrating the greatest level of care for all his soldiers.  Staff Sgt. Reed was a dedicated Soldier, always striving to be the best that he could be. He often spent hours each day at the gym, ensuring that he and his fellow Soldiers were physically fit and prepared for the rigors of each mission that faced them. He aggressively lead dozens of mounted and dismounted patrols in western Paktika Province, greatly contributing to the success of the TF Blackhawks.

Jerry is survived by many loving friends and relatives including his mother, and his two sons. 

Let us pray to God the Father, Jesus, all of the saints and all of the angels that Jerry Reed II is in heaven. Let us pray that he is at peace and is with God. Amen
