Tom’s favorite email, from his son Cory in 2011:
I’m sending this mass email out to those in my address book that would probably care or would like to know of my current situation. Today I completed my last combat patrol ending my second tour to Iraq. While I am still currently in Iraq, I am currently on a glide path that will ultimately land me safely home and in the arms of my loving family by the end of the month. God has once again granted myself and everyone in my immediate unit a safe tour thus far (still a few that haven’t left yet) for the second time. I thank you all for your prayers and any actions that you might have taken to aid in helping my family or myself through this deployment. I’m truly grateful for your selflessness and your willingness to put others before yourself. I just wanted to let you all know that I’m OK and should be home soon. Please tell everyone I said hello and thank those that I might have missed as I have left many friends and loved ones that I don’t have in my address book. I hope you all are well, and I hope to talk to all soon.
THANK YOU LORD FOR HIS SAFE RETURN!
