Final Mission of LCPL Thomas C. Henry

There is a personal account for this incident by Jerry Lomax, 3rd Bn/5th Marines, M Co.: “On March 29, 1968, Mike Company crossed a small river in Thua Thien Province while on patrol. Normally, the first thing I do is go to the nearest water hole if I know one is around. I remember I was so tired that I just plopped down. A couple of minutes later, I heard a loud explosion just a few yards from where I was. A command detonated claymore aimed near the water spring had been activated. It came from a gook on the hill overlooking the water. One of the closest friends I had at that time was PFC Terry C. Smith from North Carolina. He had just taken two pictures a couple of minutes before and then went to the water hole with some other guys. The claymore killed three (PFC Smith, PFC Nathaniel Willingham, and LCPL Thomas C. Henry) and wounded three others. It took me a bunch of days to get over what I saw at that water hole. I will never forget. It's the first memory that I have when I look at the two pictures that Terry took just before it happened.” [Taken from togetherweserved.com]

You Will Never Be Forgotten

Tommy, my only brother, you didn't have to die to be my hero, you were "always" my hero looking out for me and protecting me. You have been gone so long and yet not a day goes by that I don't think of you and Thank God I was blessed with you in my life. I look at your daughter and see so much of you that at times it brings tears to my eyes. I know you are walking with Mom now, looking down on us, I will be so happy when I see you again. i love. miss, and respect you more than words can say. I remember you always called me "little bit". Someone called me that , one time, years ago and it gave me chills, then I looked up to Heaven and smiled. .

Remembering An American Hero

Dear LCPL Thomas Carmen Henry, 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
