“You are Remembered”
Peace and condolence, to the family and friends. "He which hath no stomach to this fight let him depart. But we in it shall be remembered. We few, we happy few, we band of brothers!! For he today, that sheds his blood with me, shall always be my brother”. Rest in peace brave soldier, you have not been forgotten. (W.Shakespeare) May God Bless You for your Sacrifice!!!

I met Tom through our mutual friend, Chet in Jr. highschool. We were in John Marshall Jr. highschool in Seattle. Although Chet and I went to Lincoln and Tom went to Roosevelt, we remained friends. Together, through the years we spent literally hundreds of hours playing sports at East Green Lake playfield. During the Vietnam War, Life magazine published the pictures of Americans killed during the course of one week. As I looked through all the pictures, there was Tom. Tom, I still have that picture in my wallet. We all miss you.

High School Friend
Tom and I played chess during our high school years with other guys at Roy Russell's home in Seattle, 1964-1965. The third verse of America the Beautiful has a line which applies to Tom's sacrifice. It recalls those "who loved country more than self". Blessed are those who lay down their lives for the sake of others.

High School Days
I last saw Tom in 1965. We and other young men gathered to play chess at Roy Russell's home in Seattle. The same year I moved with my parents from Seattle and lost track of Tom. One day I saw his name mentioned in LIFE magazine amongst the other young men killed during one week in Vietnam. Whenever I hear about Vietnam all these years latter I still remember Tom. I think of all that has happened in the world since then and how he never had the chance to experience the many things in life before him. May he rest in peace and his family know peace
