Tommy and I have had hundreds of meals together over my years in Ruston. Senior Lunch; several times a week. VFW; a luncheon meeting once per month and breakfast at the VFW Post every Tuesday morning. Plus many other outings. Besides being a good eater Tommy is a real nice, lovable guy. He is one the unforgettable characters that I have met in my life.
We were stationed at Camp Cook in Lompoc, California at the same time during WW II. He was a Sargent and I was in basic training. We never met there. Tommy is a retired plumber.
He very recently celebrated his 96th Birthday. I hope to go to his 100th Birthday Party! Happy Birthday, Tommy.
