Hard Down Purple Fox to be Honored
Sullivan, Thomas J. "Sully" 1stLt. '68-'69, is permanently confined to a VA nursing home. He was one of the "BEST". Transferred from HMM-161 at Quang Tri. There are a few NOTAM's from Don "OOGA" Smith on the subject (See NOTAM Board http://www.popasmoke.com. )
"Sully" made quite a bit of history with the FOXES. (Medevac Shot Down in Arizona Territory & His Silver Star Medal award). "OOGA" is trying to put together a "Time" for Sully. Sort of a , THIS IS YOUR LIFE type of thing. Please help "Ooga" by touching base with him, getting all the scoop on "Sully", and pass it on, on the SWIFT-FOX-mike!
"Ooga" was "Sully's" gunner on many a shit sandwich up North with 161. He's still covering "Sully's" six. I have copied him in. You can reach him at this E-Mail address: COMPRISETV3@aol.com
Thanks for your help. Regards to Kahuna!
