We arrived to the 199th LIB together, you to the 2/3 and me to the 3/7. 17 days after we arrived, you paid the ultimate sacrifice. It has been 50 years my friend, and I think of you often. May you rest in peace and I hope we meet again.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear 2LT Thomas Joseph Cooney, 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
