An Air Force Captain who did not believe in the War
Thank you from someone that you will never know, a person that is very grateful for your service in the war that you didn't want to fight.
Thank for being loyal to your country. You did a good deed for your country, and for that I thank you.
From a thankful person
Tom, you were my beloved and the father of our children, Kirstin and Chad. They are bright and beautiful souls, just like you. And just like you, they are courageous and brave. Thank you for them; for still showing up in my dreams when I need comfort or guidance; when only you will do; for the strength to carry on; for all of what we shared together; in life and in death. For the laughter, and the tears; the lessons and the love. You live on in them, in your grandchildren Jacob and Joy and forever in the hearts of all who loved you.
I'm sorry I never got to know you.
From his daughter,
Tom will always be remembered by the "Stingers" with whom he served as an all-around great guy and a fine pilot.
I sent Kirstin a letter a couple of years ago, and I hope she shared it with her mother and brother. I heard recently from Don Williams, who roomed with Tom at Danang and would like to get in touch with his family. He's at firstname.lastname@example.org .
May God's blessings be with all of you this holiday season.
I was engaged to Tom in college. Even then, he was courageous, loving and brave. Family meant so much to him and they in turn always relied on him. He was the hero of the family. Even Tinka and Wendy, the family dogs, adored him.
I will never forget his strength and values. I have not seen the likes of him again. I treasure my time with him, and pray for him daily.
I last spoke to Tom before he went to Vietnam. I was so glad to hear he was married and had a daughter. We talked about our daughters and life. I will never forget the conversation.
I know he was a hero to the end, he was always mine.
