I knew him as Tommy.

He was my uncle. I was twelve years old when the family was notified of his presumed death. At the time I doubt any of us knew much about Viet Nam, and while we said sad goodbyes when he left, it never occurred to us that he might not return. His sister (my aunt), is still alive but for some reason (I recently discovered this through contact with a second cousin we'd never met), she was never contacted years later as his next of kin. The second cousin was invited to a celebration/memorial in Washington D.C. and was as appalled as we were/are to discover this. It would have meant a great deal to his sister. He also left behind a lovely fiancé. I want to say thank you to all of you who've posted here. Thank you for remembering, for honoring his service. To my knowledge, his remains have never been found. It remains both a grief and a mystery to our family. Thank you again for all of your remembrances.

According to dpaa.mil

As of the report 8/7/2020, Cpl. Thomas Anderson still remains body not recovered. he is listed under the state of Alaska.
Further, because of the Covid -19 virus, all but one global search has been stopped. The one search they mentioned as still on going was off the coast pf Latvia. That of course may have stopped by now. This further report did not have a date on it.
We pray that dpaa.mil may safely restart in the future.

Gone but never forgotten

My 10 year old son wrestles with Camel Kids in Wyoming. Our club gives each child a fallen soldier to wear on their back, remember, and dedicate each season to. My son was honored with CPL Thomas Anderson this year. Reading his story was overwhelming for him. He will retell his story to his teammates and coaches, and wear his name proudly. Your sacrifice will not be forgotten.

NOT FORGOTTEN

I have been wearing a bracelet in memory of Cpl. Thomas for many years. Does anyone know if he was ever found?
