I remember you as a fellow classmate and teammate at Coloma High School. I loved playing basketball with you and remember your kindness. I WAS SHOCKED when I heard of your passing and over the passed 50 plus years have thought about you several times. Rest in piece my old friend.

Thomas P. Pruiett, Jr. --- Hero

Thomas Pierre Pruiett, Jr. of Coloma, MI was born November 16, 1947. He dropped out of Coloma High School following his junior year (1965-66). One classmate recalls that he always wanted to be a Marine. Another remembers that he played football and excelled in basketball. A Private First Class (E2) with the 26th Marine Division, he was killed on March 31, 1968 in Quang Tri Province by rocket fragments during the fight for Hill 861. This was about a month after Phase I of the Tet Offensive (January-February 1968). Fighting in the province, usually referred to as the Battle of Khe Sanh, was brutal. Between January and July 1968, more than 750 Marines were killed and almost 5,000 were wounded. He is buried in Coloma Cemetery, Coloma, Michigan. He was survived by his parents (Thomas and Regina Pruiett), two brothers (John and Walter), a step-brother (Robert) and two sisters (Terry and Tina). RIP Thomas.
