Tommy, it was a pleasure to know you. You were always a gentleman and a joy to be around. What a talented, wonderful, meticulous artist you were and with a golden singing voice too. I will miss you and I know you will be sorely missed by all who knew you. Heartfelt sympathies to family-members.
Thought you might like to know I have submitted your name to the Historian of the Merrills Marauders Association who will add your name to the memorial wall.
Thank you for your service to our country and for the sacrifices you and your family made for U.S.!
Mrs. George J. Jubic,
Johnsonville, New York
A Reply from Merrills Mauraders Historian

In regards to my previous guestbook entry where I said I would notify the Merrills Mauraders Association of Tommys passing,..an email I recieved in reply today from the founder;
Mrs. George Jubic,
Thank you so very much for your kind concern in notifying me of the passing of Sgt. Jubic.
In the Obit, it doesn't state that he also earned the Combat Infantry Badge(CIB) and the Bronze Star Medal (BSM). He may not have known about the BSM, for it was awarded after the war. Then again he was receiving our newsletter and should have known.
If someone decides to apply for his BSM, they would need the following:
Award of the CIB, Gen Order #3 475th Inf. effective 1 June 1944. Award of the BSM, by EO 9419, while serving in the Composite Unit 5307th Provisional.
Our next issue of our newsletter, will list Thomas P Jubic as having answered The Final Roll Call and will go to the, 427 2nd Street address, then unless otherwise requested will stop.
