I was able to accompany my dad, Roger Bauer, on an honor flight in November. It was a life changing moment (for both of us) but was able to heighten my appreciation for his service during the Vietnam war. The honor flight was an amazing way to honor his service as well and provide the appreciation he may not have appropriately received during wartime. The impact I saw the honor flight have on him as well as many of the other veterans on the flight was moving. I thank him and the veterans that have received or need to receive their due respect for their service.

I will always remember Tom as one of the most helpful neighbors I’ve ever had. He was so generous with his time and mechanical know-how. He especially helped me manage the trees in my yard to the point that we joked that they were "his trees." Tom was fun to talk with, and I enjoyed his viewpoints and humor. I will miss him. Tom, may you rest in peace.
Thank you for your service, Tom. It was an incredible experience to welcome all the honorees back home after the flight and an exceptional privilege to have been included in yours alongside your family. RIP my friend, you will be missed.
