    Thank you for your service as a Radio Teletype Operator. Another national holiday is coming, and we honor you this Labor Day. 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.
  • Tom's PH Story

    Posted on 6/9/15 - by JMF
    Because many Vietnam Documents were "Classified" for over 40 years, it took Tom's family another 1-1/2 years to gather the information to change the original Military report to the family…Casualty was "Non-Hostile, died of illness or injuries" to "Hostile, died of wounds".

    Tom's family located and talked with the pilot of the helicopter, the commander on the helicopter, the platoon members that rushed to the downed helicopter and pulled everyone off the burning aircraft while fighting off the Viet Cong. They located the aircraft tail number, the crash report, the command's daily reports, the death reports, and much more.

    Tom was finally awarded the Purple Heart Posthumously on December 12, 2012, and his family received the Purple Heart for him on Armed Forces Day 2013.

    We miss and love our brother. Thank you Tom for your service!

  • Remembering An American Hero

    Dear SP4 Thomas Vincent Feldhaus, 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
