I haven't forgotten about Tommy... was just reminiscing the other day with some co-workers, about the hard work Tommy would put in on my Tank, sometimes in super nasty weather conditions, just to make sure it was FMC by the time the next mission came along. I would always try to seek him out to work on my Tank so that he could become more proficient at his MOS.

I also remember him being on my Platoon's maintenance team (along with a Turret Mechanic) when we deployed for training at Fort Hood to play OPFOR against 4ID during their M1A2SEP New Equipment Testing/Training.... and we would take the maintenance LMTV out off-roading in the mud whenever we could.

Yep... hard work and fun times. That's what I remember about Tommy Gray.

Note:  I have tried to make this remberance profile for SGT Gray as accurate as possible using my personal memory, some internet research, and information obtained from people that knew him well. Please feel free to send me a message with any recommendations and/or any descrepencies found.
