Bracelet

I too wore your POW bracelet as a young person and watched as the POWs returned hoping that you'd be on that plane. Thank you for your service. I still think of you and believe you are in a better place with the angels.

One of the kindest men I have known

I met Tom when he went through flight training in Pensacola, Fl. He was my date for a military ball. One evening Tom came to my house with a beautiful, red( I think) Lincoln Continental. He was so happy to show me and we went for a ride. I shall never forget him. He was so kind and a real gentleman...a hero!

CAPT Thomas Clem

I wore a CAPT Thomas Clem Bracelet as a kid. I wished so much he would be OK. I remember watching the POW's returning and hoping I would see him or read his name in the newspaper. That never happened. I served six years in the Navy (submarine service). I never forgot him or the rest of the guys that served our country. I only wish I could have done more. Thank you Capt Thomas Clem

Remembering An American Hero

Dear Captain Thomas Dean Clem, 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
