Maine's USA Games Basketball Team,
Coach Hamel & Sgt. Thomas R. Murray III
“The interaction with Sgt. Murray during
the USA Games was one of the highlights of
the week for me and the Team, and it
was so heartwarming to listen to and
watch Sgt. Murray’s remarks to the
Team when we presented him with the
autographed ball.  I was absolutely
blown away with the remarks
in Sgt. Murray’s e-mail.”
