Forest fires....then Vietnam

I met Tom right after graduating from high school in Yakima. We were part of a 20 man team which travelled the state fighting forest fires wherever needed. All Tom could talk about was how much he wanted to fly. I didn't give going into a fire a second thought when working with Tom....he was that kind of guy and I knew he had my back and I had his. RIP my friend.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear WO Thomas Ronald Pursel, 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
