Back to Back Deployments for LCpl Thomas Shanor - In The Service - August 2013
Message from Denise Hamilton, Tommy's mom...Just under two months ago we were welcoming Tommy home from deployment. Within a month of being back to his duty station in Miramar, California, he volunteered to assist another squadron with a six month deployment to Afghanistan. Tommy is both excited and motivated to assist with this tour so that others can come home from the battlefield to be with their loved ones. We wish Tommy another successful deployment and safe return home.
