Over the course of the past few years, I have tried to keep alive the memory of some of America’s finest men and women. Here is where I met American veteran Tom Smith because, as he searched himself online, he discovered that he shared a name with another American warrior.

This Tom Smith created a video to honor the other, and today on Veteran’s Day, I would like to share his creation and thank him for his work and dedication to keeping this memory from fading into oblivion.

I am the proud wife of an American submarine veteran and wish to extend to my husband and all our veterans my deepest heartfelt gratitude.
