Hank Joerger of Davis, California, was an early leader and steadfast supporter of the 9-11 truth movement.
Elmer Henry “Hank” Joerger Jr., 92, died in West Sacramento on March 1, 2014. Hank would have celebrated his 93rd birthday on Sunday, March 16. With Hank's passing the 9-11 truth movement has lost one of its greatest supporters.
Hank was born in Clarksville on March 16, 1921. His family moved to Woodland in 1929. He graduated valedictorian of his class from Woodland High School in 1939. He graduated from UC Berkeley in 1943 with a bachelor’s degree in chemistry.

Hank fought in World War II in 1944-1945. He was in Headquarters Company, 1st Battalion, 394th Infantry Regiment, 99th Infantry Division. His regiment was instrumental in holding the north flank at the Battle of the Bulge. He was highly decorated for his heroism and leadership. In October 1945, Lt. Joerger took over command of Baker Company. Hank served as captain of the guard at the Nuremberg Trials and captain at Fort Ord during the Korean War.
In 2004, he became very involved in the 911 Truth Movement to which he provided his time and financial support.
Hank contacted me in January 2012 and provided the encouragement and support I needed to publish my Solving 9-11 research. I was very happy to have such a solid supporter in Davis, where my college career began. I regret that I did not know about Hank and his 9-11 truth group when I visited Davis in the spring of 2006 and that I was unable to visit him later.
Rest in peace, Hank, you did great things in your life to bring the truth to your fellow man.
