The passing of tommyboy52
This is my first post, and I am writing as the girlfriend and partner of a deceased U.S. Army Special Forces member, SSG Thomas A. Rhoads. I was aware that Tom enjoyed speaking with members here, and I felt it was important to advise those who knew him here as to his sudden passing on Memorial Day weekend, 2015.

To all who knew Tom Rhoads, aka TRH5555, it's with heavy heart that I write this post. I am currently in Tom's hometown of Pittsburgh, PA where a military honors funeral service will take place tomorrow, June 2, 2015 at 10:00 in the National Cemetery of the Alleghenies.

Thanks to all here who shared with him the fellowship and camaraderie he so enjoyed.

With respect,

I am still a FNG and will always be in this house, but I have never had anyone show any animosity towards me for sharing my respect for the fallen. This forum and its members are a cut above the rest.

Rest easy SSG Rhoads.
