    This is a tribute to a cousin never known, Cpl. Thomas J. Mallon. Recently through ancestry research I found out that Thomas and I are cousins. Our great grandmothers his Charlotte Quinn and mine Elizabeth Quinn were sisters. Having served in the Army during this period, but lucky enough to have avoided Vietnam, having a brother who served 2 tours with the Marines there and lucky enough to return I wish to thank him for his service and his family for there loss. Through ancestry I have reconnected with relatives from years back, some I never knew before. This connection to Thomas is one I will treasure for the rest of my life.

    Dear CPL Thomas John Mallon, 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
