The St. Louis Chapter
of the National Football Foundation is named for Tom Lombardo because he embodied the values and character which the chapter
seeks to develop and reinforce. Tom was born in 1923 and graduated from Soldan High School in 1941. He attended
St. Louis University and transferred
to West Point in July 1942, where he was captain of the Army football team. This team scored 504 points
to their opponents' 35, a record which will probably never be equaled at the Academy.
Tom was serious,
sincere, unselfish, mature, confident, and caring. He led by example, both on and off the field, and acted without pretense
or fanfare. Tom's military career took him to Ch'ogye, Korea,
where on September 24, 1950; he led a group of volunteers from the company
he commanded up a hill to carry out an assault on an enemy position. Casualties were heavy, but the enemy was routed. First
Lieutenant Tom A. Lombardo fell just as the enemy abandoned their position.
General Douglas MacArthur
said of Lt. Tom Lombardo: "He knew no compromise with duty, nor sought any, but his final breath gave implacable devotion
to the immortal legend by which he was trained to serve- 'Duty, Honor, Country.' Let those who struggle for supremacy in sports
remain ever conscious that hereto are sown seeds that upon others fields, on other days, will bear the fruits of victory
