Thomas R.E. Waters
Born in Chicago Illinois.  Tom enlisted in the United States Air Force in July 1960 after graduation from Tilden Technical High School.  After basic training, he was stationed at Shaw AFB, South Carolina before going to Vietnam as a Staff Sergeant in 1966.  Although exempt from serving in the war-zone because his younger brother (Melvin) was killed in Vietnam in 1965, he volunteered because of his dedication to duty and love of country. 
 
In Vietnam, Colonel Waters was assigned to the 3rd Tactical Fighter Wing (TFW) at Bien Hoa Air Base and later transferred to the 366th TFW at DaNang Air Base.  At DaNang, he was wounded in a midnight rocket attack while working as an Egress (ejection seat) technician on an F-4C aircraft in July 1967.  Injuries received by being blown from the aircraft to the concrete ramp were a broken foot and cracked spine.  He was honorably discharged as a Technical Sergeant (E-6) in 1968.
