In Loving Memory Of

Thomas J. McGuire

September 19, 1932- December 23, 2010

Sandan (11/29/78), Okinawan Isshin-ryu Karate-do

Tommy was an Army Infantryman in the Korean War where he was awarded a Combat Infantryman’s Badge and Purple Heart for wounds received in combat, in addition to other decorations. He then went on to serve in the US Army Reserve and was Honorably Discharged as a First Sergeant (E-8). Tommy was proud of his service to his country, as he should have been.

"Go to sleep!
Go to sleep!
Slumber well where the shell screamed and fell.
Let your rifles rest on the muddy floor,
You will not need them any more.
Danger's past;
Now at last,
Go to sleep!"

“May God hold Tommy in the hollow of his hand."
