    I do think of you often.
    I know you would laugh knowing how I have found you on the "web".
    THANK YOU Tom, for your service and giving your life. I remember you as a martyr and hero. I am so glad you gave your heart to Christ. Some day I'll shake your hand and thank you personally.

    Dear SP4 Thomas Allen Hower, 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
