We were so sorry to hear of Tommy’s passing. I worked with him as a Surgical Assistant at Norfolk General Hospital. I was also a Hospital Corpsman and at Phi Bai in 1965-66. I have many good memories of him and many good times over the years. It has been a long time since I saw him and I regret that as he was a good friend. May he rest in peace with the Lord and his Angels.
