I remember that Tom was on the swim team. I remember having a long talk with him at a beach party, I think in August after we graduated. I never really knew him before then. I think he enlisted. I know at our five year reunion he had already passed. He was a nice guy.

Tom and I joined the Marines on their "Buddy" program.  We enlisted together and then went to boot camp at MCRD San Diego together.  After boot camp we went different ways for training.  We were both in Viet Nam around the same time and did get together once while we were over there.  We met in DaNang for a few hours and he told me his job was dumping chemicals (Agent Orange) out of helicopters to help kill vegitation.  I know beyond any doubt that it was the Agent Orange that killed Tom with cancer.  I don't care what the government says!  Tom was a good friend and shouldn't have died so young.
