Tommyboy 52's passing

To all who wrote me about SSG Thomas Rhoads - my hero and partner, I am overwhelmed by the outreach from the military community at his beautiful, awe-inspiring service at the National Cemetery of the Alleghenies yesterday, June 2, 2015. But when I was tapped on the shoulder by a member of SOCNET who had come to the service, I was overwhelmed.

Your community was one Tom found the elusive camaraderie he'd known in his Team 555, and the solace of being present with those who knew. Simply that. I was happy he'd been a member of your forum, and it was yesterday, meeting Ace at the funeral, when I knew I wasn't alone.

I've traveled most of the day today to return home.
It's been lonely, to say the least - so thank you for "holding onto me" for now. It helps more than you all know.
