RIP

Tom, I always called you Andy after the actor Andy Devine. We had ourselves a ball whenever we could get away with it. I have always wondered where your final resting place was. Thanks to whomever put fishkill rural cemetery. I will someday find my way to fishkill rural cemetery and we can chat. I am not that skinny kid I was then. I think of you often and wish someday to hear from Tom's sister. satch3@comcast.net will find me. I still hold out hope of hearing from some of his family. Thanks Tom for your sacrifice! Terry(satch) Satrum

Remembering An American Hero

Dear CPL Thomas Edward Devine, 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

Remembering Tom

I started going to Beacon High School in the 1964-65 schoolyear. this is where I met Tommy. I remember him as a tough, scrappy Beacon kid who was one of the nicest kids I met in high school. Whenever he seen you he would always know you by name and carry on a conversation with you. Unfortunately I was only acquainted with Tom for a couple of years before he went into the army and I went into the navy. When I found out Tommy had lost his life in Viet Nam I couldn't believe it. I remember thinking to myself, why Tommy? I still to this day wonder what Tommy would have been like and what he would have been doing had he not lost his life in Viet Nam. I wish we could have both finished our tours, returned home and gotten to know each other better in the following years. But that wasn't to be, for Tommy had answered his country's call to fight for us, and he did so, paying the ultimate sacrifice. We in Beacon,N.Y. and the country should never forget this or Tommy. I'm proud of you and I miss you Tom! I could not make Tom's service's because I was serving at the time also, but I would like to send my sincerest sympathy to his sister Cheryl and any member of his family who may read this. Also if you knew or served with Tommy please feel free to drop me a line. I would really like to hear from you.....Mike Losee, Beacon, N.Y. Quapaw110@webtv.net
