A True Hero

He was one of the best.

I never heard anyone say anything negative about Tom--NEVER! He was one of those special petty officers. He must really be missed by his family. I served with Tom in HS-6 from '65 through the middle of '67. Anyone else out there who knew Tom, send me a note. I would especially like information on his son. There are things about Tom that I would like to share with him.
