In February of 1966, while flying combat missions over North Vietnam, his RA5-C reconnaissance jet was downed by enemy fire. He parachuted safely but was captured immediately. For the next seven years he was held as a POW in the Communist prisons of North Vietnam. After his repatriation in February, 1973, Jerry returned to operational duties. He retired from active duty in the Navy after 28 years of service.
BEYOND SURVIVAL, Captain Coffee gives a moving account of his incredible experience from capture to ultimate release. His faith - in himself, others, his country, and his God - was the key to turning an unbelievably difficult, potentially devastating experience into an opportunity for personal growth. Captain Gerald Coffee is an inspiring example of the power of the human spirit to survive and triumph over the most adverse circumstances. His story conveys a positive message that we each have the potential to survive any ordeal, overcome any obstacle, achieve any goal.

"The show no sooner ended when my son phoned me and said: 'Dad, I learned a lot about you today during your Veterans Radio interview. I just want to say thank you for what you did over there and thank you for being my father." An email sent from a guest on Veterans Radio
Veterans Radio is dedicated to all the men and women who have served or are currently serving in the armed forces of the United States of America. Our mission is to see that the world appreciates what extraordinary things ordinary people have done to gain and preserve the freedom we assume everyone enjoys – and the ultimate price that is often paid.
Veterans Radio will include our listener's stories and experiences, not only while in the service, but afterwards as well. Interviews with guest speakers and authors will be a weekly feature. The content of the programs on Veterans Radio will ultimately be determined by our listeners.
Veterans Radio feels it is time for our communities to know who among their neighbors was willing to pay the ultimate price to preserve and protect their basic freedoms. Veterans Radio will act as an advocate for veteran's issues. Politics has no place in determining what is fair for America's veterans. Veterans Radio just wants our politicians to keep their promises. We encourage our listeners to get involved in the political process and to make our voices heard.
If you have any suggestions for topics or music you would like to hear, please contact us.
