God Bless Our Heroes

Tommy is my Hero, he is also my Cousin. I remember when Tommy went into the Military and ended up being deployed to Viet Nam. I was 13 at the time , as we all know they were tumultuous times to say the least. Seems as though everyone was choosing sides as far as supporting our troops or protesting the war. I as a 13 year old knew little or nothing about the war except that Tommy was fighting for our country. Of course I supported Tommy and our Troops. I remember receiving a photo of Tommy in Country next to his piece of artillery. Soon after that photo arrived to our home town of San Gabriel we were notified that Tommy had been badly injured and later succumbed to his burns. It is a day I will never forget Tommy is and always will be my Hero, I visit him at his eternal resting place not far from where we grew up. His birthday is upon us again and I salute a wonderful young man that gave his all. God bless you Tommy. We will never forget.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear SGT Tommy Roy Thomas, 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

Los Angeles County Vietnam Veterans Memorial Highway

A portion of Sepulveda Boulevard/State Highway Route 1 in El Segundo near Los Angeles International Airport has been dedicated to the residents of Los Angeles County who served in Vietnam. This section of highway is now designated the Los Angeles County Vietnam Veterans Memorial Highway. Adopted by the California State Legislature in 2000, the highway honors the more than 350,000 California veterans who served in the Vietnam War, including the 5,822 killed or missing in action. Los Angeles County has the largest number of Vietnam veterans in California and 1,857 of its residents were killed or missing in action during that war. This memorial corridor provides a fitting and proper way for the residents of Los Angeles County to express their gratitude and appreciation for the sacrifices these Vietnam veterans have made for their country.

I'm sorry my friend that you had to leave us, you were so young. But, you were one of the lucky ones that doesn't have to live through the agony of abandonment and guilt year after year. You are always remembered.
