Post from the Vietnam Wall Memorial: “To my friend. I think of you often and I miss your friendship. I was saddened upon learning of your passing. I will always remember the good times we shared at Fort Eustis, VA as enlisted men and also in Vietnam as young 1st LT’s. I still remember that we always spoke of our families and how much we both loved them. Rest in peace Tom, you earned it.” William Hillis, Friend, Saturday, October 30, 2004.
