More than four decades ago, Lt. Thomas Shaw was killed when his Huey helicopter crashed in Vietnam. Two members of his crew survived the crash, and his roommate, Jim Crigler, escorted Lieutenant Shaw’s body back to Wisconsin. Forty-two years later, Jim and the two surviving crew members traveled to Sheboygan for a special tribute to Tom Shaw’s family.
