Pearl Harbor Day 2017

December 7. Missing my friend Mr Tom more than ever today. Grateful for Tryon Palace recognizing him last year, and for taking this picture.

Not Goodbye, but See You Later

My friend and grandfather Mr Tom passed on earlier today. He will be greatly missed as he was greatly loved.
This photo was taken at (and by) Tryon Palace on Pearl Harbor Day, where he was the guest of honor. It may be one of my favorite pictures of him.

Before you now appears the militia of Christ’s triumph.

Tom Poole: 1918-2017, USN (Ret), WWII veteran of Pearl Harbor and D-Day, the greatest man I have ever known.
