 Additional Information
Last Known Activity
PFC Thomas Warren Davis, 25, Son of Mr and Mrs H.Tom Davis of 904 Brooks Avenue, Garner, was killed in a battle in South Vietnam, May 13th. In two weeks he would have been home and out of the service. "His brother, Wayne, was in Germany and had just gotten out of the Army not long ago," said Mrs J.L.Lancaster, a neighbor. "they hadn't seen each other for four years. I think it was, and they were really looking forward to being back together again," she said. Davis, who took basic training at Fort Bragg and attended artillery school at Ft Sill, Oklahoma, had been in the service 18 months. He had been in Vietnam for 13 1/2 months when a normal tour there is 12 months. Davis voluntarily had extended his duty in order to get an "early out" from the Army. "They don't know if he'll get any medals or anything like that," said Mrs Lancaster, "The Army is supposed to let them know." Before entering the service, Davis, a graduate of Garner High School, worked at Sealey's Gulf station in Garner, where he was known as "Red". Davis is survived by his parents; two brothers, Joseph Wayne Davis and Russell Wade Davis of Garner; a sister, Wanda Kay Davis of the home, and his maternal grandmother, Mrs Otis William Bedford of Anniston, Maryland.
