Lance Corporal Thomas E. Creek was my friend and fiance' when he was killed in 1969. I think of him always and miss him every day. He was a sweet young man, probably the most giving individual I ever knew. When he asked me to marry him, I was only 17, and knew he was going overseas to Viet Nam. I told him I would marry him when he came home if he still wanted me. But Tom said he wanted to get married first because he just had this feeling that he wasn't coming back. I became upset and angry with him for saying such a thing. And today I wish I could go back in time and change it all. But you see, so many young men I'd seen go overseas, whether Germany, Korea or Viet Nam, had come back with completely different agendas than when they left. Why? Because they left our precious America as children, and came back MEN. Tom didn't get to come home after all, but I am as proud of him today as I was then.

Recently I learned that his little brother, Roy Creek, has passed away, as well as his parents. Oh how his family hurt and paid. Tom has one living older brother, Ross Creek of Amarillo, TX. I just hope Ross and his wife, Kris, know how much Tom was loved - and by so many!

HE WILL NEVER BE FORGOTTEN, I PROMISE.

Semper Fi, my young man.

I have read about you, watched a VA Center be named after you, and stood right at your marker.

I spent four years in the Corps and am so honored to this day to be a part of a team that you represented with all a man can give.

Thank you and your family for helping me and my family live on in the name of Love.
