An American Hero
Final Mission of SP4 Thomas C. Vaughn
Remembering An American Hero
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, and the best salute a civilian can muster for you, Sir
I joined A Co. 3-506 101st Airborne July '67. Thomas trained me as a RTO (Radio Telephone Operator). He was always upbeat and friendly. He was a man you could always count on. I was there on the field Feb. 19,'68. I mourned along with all the men of the platoon. He wore his uniform with pride and served his country and his fellow troopers honorably.
