HALF PIPE, GT Capital – Jerry2Cool, who has not been seen over the past week, is now believed to be retired by his fellow Golden Troops Leaders, as both Sercan and Lord Pain have assumed he is now gone for good.
In a post written by Sercan entitled “A New Era,” Sercan states that Jerry has not been seen for the past week, and believes he may never again return. The excerpt of this post concerning Jerry is seen below.
Well, as you may already know, Jerry has been AWOL(away without an official leave/ away on duty) for a whole week, and we believe he may never come back again. This took us by surprise, and despite this unhonorable move, we will respect Jerry and award him the first Golden Troops Medal of Honor. It is very sad to see such a great leader go, however, I personally noticed his lack of enthusiasm in the past weeks, and predicted something similar to this may happen. Jerry was not working at his full capacity, hence why the soldiers gave him the nickname “Mr. Afk”. Jerry was a major kingpin in the evolution of autotyping, establishing alongside myself, the Golden Troops Recruiting Force. With him gone, I shall assume his role of Director of the GTRF. We will really miss, Jerry, as he was a great friend, really respected leader with amazing skill. It is really unknown why he’s gone, but I suspect it may be due to stress in real life and giving up on the Golden Troops. It is really unlikely for him to return, but in case he does, he will be given the rank of Leader immediately.

Above, he states that he thought this might happen, as he lacked motivation over the past few weeks. He believes his departure was caused by stress in his real life. Later in the day, Lord Pain, Golden Troops Leader, posted a heartfelt tribute post dedicated to Jerry and how he impacted his career. It chronicles the adventures of the two colleagues, and states how Jerry revolutionized warfare in his own respect.
Jerry believed that army leaders should respect each others armies, and never take things too far to the point of destruction. Jerry believed that one can not rebuild what is broken by destroying it completely to start with a clean slate. He believed in building on and improving upon what was already built contrary to what I believed. Because of Jerry I now believe a mix of what he believed in and what I believed in beforehand. Jerry believed in a united community where only fun wars occur, something we greatly had in common. What we did not both believe in, is that to get there, there must be destruction, that a community such as that must be brought about by force and not by negotiation.

The above passage, in my eyes, perfectly describes Jerry’s views. Lord Pain goes on to describe his and Jerry’s journey together through the past four years, concluding his post with the following passage.
In conclusion Jerry2Cool was a good man, and he is irreplaceable in the Golden Troops and in my life itself. In every action this army takes we will honor his memory, we will honor his sacrifices. Every battle we fight from this day on we fight for Jerry2Cool. Jerry saved me in every way a man can be saved, and without him I would not be here today. Thank you Jerry, for believing in me when no one else would. Thank you for accepting me in 2011, it was an honor to lead with you and to know you in this life itself. With you gone, apart of me is gone and its depressing. I will miss you my friend, my partner in leadership, my second half. I am crying as I write this post, and I wish I could give you so much more. I will carry your burden, GT will live because of you. I knew you wanted me to replace you. And I promise you, I won’t give up no matter what and I will do what you would of done in every situation that confronts me during my leadership.

Jerry was well respected not only by me, but by the community. His strategies and ideas rivaled those of the best, and his honesty made him somebody who was always easy to be around. He never held a grudge, and never sought revenge. He epitomized what warfare was supposed to be for people: fun. He never took things too seriously, and always knew how to lighten the mood with a good laugh. Jerry was a great leader, and for sure will be remembered through the years as one.
