Tommy was my best friend back in the "world". We went to high school and also church together. We spent a lot of time together. If I wasn't at his house he was at mine.
I got drafted in April, 1969 and was in Vietnam by August. He didn't get drafted until later and was in country by November of that year. I received a letter from my parents while I was in the hospital in Saigon after getting wounded that told me that he was killed.
I miss him very much and there isn't a day that goes by that I don't think of him in some way. He has a son that he never was able to meet. Brandon and I got to meet 30 years later and it was a meeting that I will forever be grateful for. Tommy, I miss you.
