It was a long long time ago that Clark W. Thompson of Galveston introduced my dad & I to Jack Brooks during his retirement after redistricting so Jack Brooks could go on to political victory and remain in Congress to support SE Texas with special mention to our Hurricane & Flood Protection Projects as well as Lamar University. Then, it was Jack Brooks, a WWII Marine & Member of Congress, who came to the aid of this USMC Sgt trying to get enough wall lockers for his squad as the new wall lockers were locked up in a warehouse in Camp Lejuene for safe keeping & not in our barracks in Camp Giger. I also made it home to Texas to be with my family for Christmas 1973 after missing them for three Christmas's in a row as duty was always calling for my MOS due to another phone call to certain persons by The Honorable Jack Brooks = no one had ever heard of Permissive TDY orders before, espescially to my PHR in Texas City, Tx, but the Paris Peace Accords had been signed after the big & long 1972 Easter Offensive & the 1973 War was over in The Middle East so after mission after mission I was worn out and just needed to be home for Christmas with my family and Jack Brooks made it happen because he understood from his WWII & other experiences in his life.

May God comfort his family at this time and May God Bless us with another Jack Brooks some day because not only did he represent SE Texas so very well, he also represented all Americans. Respectfully,

Tarrant B. Boyd II, Romayor, Liberty Co, Texas, USA.

To the Brooks family...Mr. Brooks helped me in October, 1970 to get my husband home from Viet Nam, our 6 month old baby was dying. Red Cross was not helping us. My sister called Mr. Brooks and my husband was home in 3 days. Oh, how grateful we were. Our son did recover with my husband by my side. I never thanked him.... He was a great man and I send my thoughts and prayers to his family.

Hugs Ms. Brooks (and kids and grandkids) I had the great pleasure to work in DC two summers for Cong. Brooks. Everything about he and his office was amazing. Thank you Congresman Brooks - -you had great influence on my life.

To the Brooks Family, Mr. Brooks was a wonderful southern gentleman, who never forgot where he came from. He walked his walk and talked his talk. They just don't make men like him anymore. May God bless all of you in this sad time, and may Mr. Brooks rest in Peace.
