The first time I met T.J. was at church where I commented that "I just love G.I's. We were best friends forever! I grew up around Ft. Campbell and married a G.I. Stella, I pray for peace to abide with you as you go through this transition. I love you and God especially LOVES you.

TJ and I were stationed in Wertheim, Germany many years past. Years after that, we attended the very first distance learning First Sergeant's Course at Fort Sill along with folks from several other posts that we talked with and saw daily thanks to the beauty of the internet. He was an outstanding man, helpful and friendly always, a HORSE of a man with biceps on his biceps lol. Sending all best and happy thoughts to his family from Oklahoma.
