Immediately upon completion of his schooling, Gillary was assigned as the intelligence advisor for a military transition team and completed a seven-month deployment to Iraq as the intelligence advisor for the Fifth Brigade, Iraqi Department of Border Enforcement.  Upon return from Iraq, he was promoted to Captain and took command of Second Platoon, Bravo Company, First Reconnaissance Battalion, First Marine Division (Fwd) and deployed to combat operations in Helmand Province, Afghanistan from May-December 2010.  He received a Navy and Marine Corps Commendation Medal with Combat Distinguishing Device for his actions in Afghanistan. His proudest moment was returning from seven-months of intense combat operations with all of his Marines alive. 

The Hertz Foundation-George Lerman Fellowship is named by David and Louis Lerman for their father, George Lerman, MD, who has had a military, medical, and physics career of considerable depth. Dr. Lerman holds graduate degrees in physics, medicine, and economics.  Early on he served as the first chief of space medicine for the US space program where he was responsible for the original seven Mercury astronauts. Dr. Lerman worked on both the human and hardware issues of manned spaceflight.  "George is a delightful raconteur of history, economics, and the human condition," continued Dr. Davis. "In his active 'retirement' George timeshares between high tech startups (with patents pending) and finishing his PhD studies in physics at Stanford."

For nearly a half century, the Hertz Foundation has fostered America's strength by finding the best and brightest from the applied physical, biological and engineering sciences. Considered the Nation's most generous support for graduate education in these disciplines, the Hertz Fellowship is valued at more than a quarter million dollars per student, with su
