I’ve asked for a flag to be placed on my cousin’s grave for Memorial Day! Thank you for doing this and God Bless you.
Thomas (Tommy) Shannon was my cousin. He had a great sense of humor and was always so much fun! The last time I saw him before he deployed, he took us younger kids to get an ice cream cone. It was a hot day and as he was driving, his ice cream was melting down his arm. He threw the cone out the car window and his dog followed it out the window. The dog was unhurt, just lapping up the ice cream. We all were rolling on the ground laughing! It never occurred to me that I would never see him again.
He died defending a hill in Viet Nam. He was only 22 years old!
