In Honor Of  Army Spec. Thomas A. Foley III

Army Specialist Thomas A. Foley was assigned to B
Battery, 2-44th Air Defense Artillery Regiment with the 101st Airborne from
Fort Campbell, KY.  He left Fort Campbell in route to Iraq right around
March 1st... his 23rd birthday.  In the early morning hours of April
14th there was a knock on his Grandmother's front door in Dresden, TN.
Tommy was not going to be coming home from the war.  One more brave
soul had given his life in honor to his country and while defending the
rights of peoples from another land.  Though the details of his death
were (and in some ways still remain) unsure we understand he was killed
when an explosive devise detonated unexpectedly.  However it happened,
the fact remains he gave his life for his country... the soldier's
ultimate sacrifice.

Tommy, as he was known by friends and family, was a dedicated husband
and newborn son was the light of his very world.  He was a much loved
husband, father, brother, son, grandson and nephew.  He had an
outstanding ability to make those around him smile with his infectious
personality.  He was an incurable prankster who loved karaoke and playing pool
with his buddies.  There is a void in the lives of all that he touched
with his passing.  He is kept alive in the hearts and memories of his
loved ones.
