Tom was an FBI Special agent and pilot for the FBI.  He was responsible for THE HERD getting Caribou’s at the United Parachute Club, he flew them and jumped them.  He was in a helicopter crash while working an FBI case in California.  The FBI Retired him, I was at the retirement dinner and ceremony along with several members of THE HERD.  Tom and I were teammates and friends.

You are spot on; Tom was special in many ways. As a long time NE jumper, I met Tom at one of those Herd “thingys”, for such a disciplined man he was also at ease with us scoundrels and genuinely open to being a friend too. He let his actions do the “talking”.
