YOUNG MARINES FROM THE VALLEY IN THE VIETNAM WAR

2010 THE YEAR OF VALLEY ADVENTURES

Photo gift to the Archives of The Museum of the San Fernando Valley 2010 by Jerry Berns.

Pierce College Fraternity brothers, Jerry Berns (left) and Dennis Nolet joined the US Marine Corps early during the Vietnam war. The war devastated students organizations. Berns and Nolet's Fraternity, Phi Delta Psi, had as many as 12 young men serving in Vietnam at the same time. Many other Fraternity brothers were deployed across Europe and the United State.
After the war, one time Van Nuys resident Denny Nolet became a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine in Northern California. Jerry Berns created one of the most successful real estate companies in the United States. Jerry Berns is an adviser to The Museum of the San Fernando Valley.
