Wyoming cowboy with a giant heart

Tom and I were flight school classmates, and I remember his big smile and firm handshake. When you were his friend, he had your back, regardless of your race, color, sex, or creed. He was one of the finest people I've ever had the honor of calling my friend. He will never be forgotten . . .

God Bless You Sir

I first met Tom at Ft. Ord where we were in the same Infantry A.I.T. Company. We became fast friends, both from the west and wanting to become an officer. I left for OCS at Ft. Belvoir and Tom went on to flight school. Just after graduation and being commissioned a 2nd LT. I stopped by Ft. Wolters to "harrass" my friend Tom who was still in flight school. I just missed him by weeks. I next heard from Tom when I received a letter from him (forwarded by my parents) saying that he was in III Corps in Vietnam flying a LOH. He prayed that I would never have to go to Viet Nam. I was stationed in I Corps when I got the letter. A few months later I had the opportunity to fly down to Vung Tao where I met 2 "CAV" pilots in the Officer's Club.
I asked if they new a Warrant Officer named Tom Skiles. That is when I learned that he had just been shot down a few weeks before.
I will never forget that red headed warrior. He was good, loyal and very strong. He played football in college there in Wyoming, grew up in a good family. I will forever miss him, but am so grateful that I got to know him. Rest in peace my Brother.
