Steven C Elliott US Army 1964-1968 Vietnam. This is Anissa's father. Photos of him have been found in the documentary 'Vietnam -America's Conflict' One was printed and presented to him along with the video. The photo was when they arrived at Vietnam and was getting off the Higgins boat from the USS Sultan. They were yelling their war cry. He wasn't even 20 years old.
Jo Caldwell is Reas's wife. Her mother is a World War II Coast Guard Veteran. Jo lost all her pictures in a hurricane. This picture was found on Facebook and a replica was presented to Jo
Steve presented Reas with the Veterans Memorial Brick certificate and a photo of Reas when he was 18, just joining the USMC. This was a surprise to Reas. When the two soldiers saluted each other the tears streamed at the Thomas table ....and surrounding tables. Applause broke out as well. Good job, Sirs!
Lloyd Reas Axtell USMC 1975-1978 Vietnam Era. Reas is our lead foreman and soon to be one of our inspectors. Reas has been with Thomas almost since day one and we consider Reas one of our own. Reas was shocked to know Thomas and his wife had this framed and made for him.
Semper fi Reas ..... Always Faithful!! ooh-rah
So many Veterans Thomas wants to salute. Our Thomas family alone would take up several days worth to mention names. We salute all Veterans and Active military for the sacrifices and continued support.
Thomas gives all glory to God who has given us the freedom of will and the choice of everlasting life. Thomas also gives thanks to the United States Military. Our armed forces have sacrificed EVERYTHING to do their part in keeping our Nation safe and free. Sacrifice does not mean they lost everything or even anything. It means they were willing. And even if they changed their minds once it got real.... they did it. THOMAS SALUTES ALL ARMED FORCES and with a gratitude un-measurable.
Thomas also would like to say oo-rah to our very own Reas Axtell USMC!! We are proud to have Reas in our Thomas family. Semper fi all the way!! We are taking Reas to Olive Garden Sunday November 111 to celebrate his U S Veteran status.
