What others say about Tom's performance as
Theodore Roosevelt.

You were amazing, entertaining and more than we thought. They loved your delivery and presentation of material. I was there for two hours after your program still talking to members-they usually leave immediately. BZ. Well done. ~ LT. Steven Brewster, U.S Navy, and Governor, San Antonio Colony of the Texas Society of Mayflower Descendants, San Antonio, Texas

Everyone was mesmerized by your impersonation of Theodore Roosevelt. Every detail of Roosevelt's career as presented by you was accurate and informative. This was by far the most entertaining and interesting program I have attended in years. Great job. ~ Col. Donald J. Engelking, US Army (Ret.), member, San Antonio Professional Tour Guide Association, San Antonio, Texas
