honoring you.....

"The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena; whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who knows the great enthusiasm, the great devotions and spends himself in a great worthy cause; who at the best, knows in the end triumph of high achievement and, at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while caring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold, timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat." Theodore Roosevelt

Final Mission of CPT Thomas A. McAdams

CPT Thomas A. McAdams was the Troop Commander for F Troop, 2nd Squadron, 11th Armored Cavalry Regiment. On February 28, 1969, McAdams was an observer in a Light Observation Helicopter (LOH) conducting aerial reconnaissance approximately four miles northeast of Lai Khe Airfield in Binh Duong Province, RVN. The crew detected an enemy bunker complex and McAdams ordered F Troop to attack the fortifications. While directing his troops assaulting nearby enemy positions, the LOH was hit by a burst of automatic weapons fire. Rounds entered the aircraft cabin, critically wounding McAdams. The helicopter was able to maintain flight, and McAdams was flown to the 24th Evacuation Hospital in Long Binh. He succumbed shortly after. McAdams was posthumously awarded the Silver Star medal.

Captain Thomas A. McAdams

We served together in I Troop, 3rd Recon Squadron, 2nd ACR (Amberg). You were our Troop Maintenance Ofc. & you took me along as your clerk, worked our tails off & motivated me to develop & mature. I know it was because of you I left as an E5. At the time I didn’t understand or appreciate what you did for me. Now that I’m an old man I do. I’m sorry I never had the opportunity to tell you but I have never forgotten you and your positive influence you made on a young mans life. I know you would be proud of my accomplishments knowing you had a part in it. You are a true American hero. Thank you and God bless.

A tragic loss of life

I didn't personally know Captain McAdams, but I knew his father, and I know how devastating it was for him to lose his son in that war. My thoughts go out to all those he left behind.
