In Remembrance of PFC Thomas J. Pool

I served along side PFC Pool. We were in Alpha Company First Battalion Fifth Marines, First Marine Division. A - 1/5

We pretty much called each other by our last names back then

Tommy, as you called him , was always friendly and I never heard him say anything bad about anyone

We were all about 18 or 19 years of age at the time . The Battalion moved down to Chu Lai from the Da Nang area in the Central Highlands.

We were constantly in a combat zone moving from hill to hill

I called his parents in Texas to tell them how we liked Tommy and how it was a shame for him to lose his life in combat when I returned from Vietnam, but they were too upset to talk to me and hung up the phone. At least I tried to make contact with someone with the immediate family.

Every time I visit Washington D.C, I travel to the Vietnam Wall and look for Tommy's name and say a prayer

If , by chance , there is a family member who might read this post, please know that PFC Pool was an outstanding person, a great Marine, and will be missed.

I'll make an effort to go through my photos to see if I have any of Tommy and will try to post them to this web site..

At least I'll try.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear PFC Thomas John Pool, 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, Sir

Curt Carter
