Tom's brother, Stephen, a Navy pilot, escorted his body to Arlington National Cemetery from Vietnam, after which he left to join his squadron stationed in the Mediterranean Sea. "The Old Guard" soldiers Tom had served with just 7 months prior to his death rendered him full honors at his burial.

Lt. Charles Thomas Jones-was commissioned as a 2nd LT at Ft. Benning and was sworn in by his brother, Stephen, who was a 1Lt in the Navy. Standing tall and facing each other, they tried with some success to maintain their unflinching military face and only bobbled their lines once or twice!

Paul Magers, pilot of a Cobra gunship, was shot down near Dong Tri where a team of Army Rangers awaited rescue. The crash was nonsurvivable. On 8-25-2010, Mager's remains came home-buried in MT.

Tom's OC 2-70 class held their first reunion 30 years after they were commissioned as 2LTs. They went to Arlington Cemetery to visit Tom's gravesite. His grave stone is right by the road and can easily be read as the Arlington Cemetery Tourmobile passes by section 30 on the way to its first stop at JFK's gravesite.
