    I met Tom in the Officer's club and for some reason we hit it off. He was a great conversationalist. I had a drinking problem by then but I seemed to drink less when we talked.
    I was in 1st Platoon and he in 3rd and we usually stayed with out platoon.
    All I can say he was an all around nice guy but I did not know him well enough to be called a close friend. But in the last few month I was in Vietnam I was isolating myself and was diagnosed with PTSD many year later.
    September 1971 was a sad month for the Warlord.

    Look at what a doll-baby you were! You were the first man to tell me they loved me, but that didn't last long as you met your true love. It answers a lot of questions to read these accounts of how brave you were.You belonged on a stage and not a battlefield, Tommy.Well we're coming up on your 70th birthday! Isn't that incredible.And the 45th anniversary of your passing.I will never forget the feeling of hearing the news you'd been shot down.I looked for your face in the crowd for years, hoping you'd made it out. You are still much-loved and will never be forgotten.

    Tom was my friend and fellow 6th Warrent Officer Candidate company pilot in training in ft Wolters Texas. Tom was the most upbeat positive individual in the company. It was a time to learn and develop the instincts that would save lives. I am sure that Tom was there doing his best above the best when his time came. I hope to see my friend one more time when it's my time to pull pitch for the last time.

    Rest well Tom,
