Pictured right: Thomas at Veterans Memorial Lodge.

Photo below, with a notation from Thomas’s family: Here is a picture of young Thomas, who had just turned 18 and was proud to serve his country. He was happy to join up and head to training in England. We don’t have many stories from Dad’s time in the army but each of us kids thank him for our sense of duty — and — that came directly from Dad.

You can help veterans like Thomas enjoy the comforts of home and simple pleasures by making a donation today.
