    Dear Lt Thomas Eldridge,
    Thank you for your service as a Light Attack (Jet) Pilot. We remember all you who gave their all. It has been too long, and it's about time for us all to acknowledge the sacrifices of those like you who answered our nation's call. Please watch over America, it stills needs your strength, courage and faithfulness. Rest in peace with the angels.

    Fondly remembering my cousin Tom; as 2 "only" children, he was my "big brother" and I was the "little sister". I spent much of my childhood at my Grandparent's home in Rouses Point, NY, and cherished the times that Tom allowed me to tag along on his adventures! He taught me how to ice skate and how to swim in Lake Champlain and cheered my accomplishments. I think of him often.

    I'm so proud of the man that he became and the sacrifice he made at such a young age. As my 2 Marine grandsons would say, Semper Fi Tom!

    Lovingly, Barbara Moffett Owen

    Just a quiet reminder that Tom was killed 50 years ago today and that the respect for his valor is still carried on in time.

    Dear 1LT Thomas Farrell Eldridge, sir

    As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for your sacrifice made on behalf of our wonderful country. The youth of today could gain much by learning of heroes such as yourself, men and women whose courage and heart can never be questioned.

    May God allow you to read this, and may He allow me to someday shake your hand when I get to Heaven to personally thank you. May he also allow my father to find you and shake your hand now to say thank you; for America, and for those who love you.

    With respect, and the best salute a civilian can muster for you, Sir

    Curt Carter
