Friend talks about fallen Guardsman killed in helicopter crash

Brice Schweitzer remembered his friend 1st Lt. Thomas Williams, Jr. as an ambitious person.  The two men met at the University of Tennessee when they pledged Sigma Phi Epsilon together in 2003.
After getting his degree in economics in 2007, Williams joined the National Guard.  He served for three years.

Schweitzer, who knew Williams for almost ten years, said his friend was always willing to help others.  He said Williams started a real estate investment business that helped several Knoxville families get homes in the area.

"He was one of those guys who would just about do anything you needed him to do," Schweitzer said.  "He was a true American, he loved the military and he really loved to fly."
