That, of course, is the voice of Jerry Donnellan, the former Director of Rockland’s Veterans Service Agency, who passed away on Friday. He was talking about the watchfires that have been a Memorial Day staple here in the county for years. The lifelong Rocklander served in Vietnam until he was honorably discharged after losing a limb in combat in 1969. He has worked tirelessly to educate veterans and their families about post-traumatic stress disorder and to reduce the stigma attached to it. He was 71.
