The family of Jerry Pickard donated his Navy jacket to the Northwest Veterans Museum in a ceremony at Heroes' CafĂ© Lynnwood last Tuesday July 26, 2022. 

Jerry’s grandson, Jonathan Picard, presented the jacket to Carl Kurfess of the Northwest Veterans Museum 19921 Poplar Way, Lynnwood, Washington 98036 in Heritage Park.

The jacket represents the time Jerry served as a photographer with the P2V Neptune Squadron based at the Whidbey Island, WA Naval Air Station.
