Biography

Thomas Monahan was a Major in the US Army. He suffered a tragic fall on July 6, 1965 which necessitated the removal of the right lobe of his brain. This procedure left him without memory. The brain damage only allowed him to remember up to a certain time in his life. He died in the Veteran's Hospital in Brockton, Massachusetts after years of hospitalization. He is buried at the Fort Bliss Cemetery in El Paso, Texas.
