Odinís Underling

AKA Thomas J. Falter, entered into rest on October 11, 2014 after a brief and brutal fight with pancreatic cancer.

I served with Falter in B Co 1/75 in the early 80’s. Being many enlisted ranks above me I never knew him well but he enjoyed paying me particular attention. I have not seen him in some thirty years but have been in internet contact with him for some time.

He provided our platoon with experience and guidance. Often referred to by the nickname “Fozzie” he also provided constant humor, entertainment and laughs.

Falter was liked and respected by all of the Rangers around him.

Rest In Peace Ranger

Obit
