There is a Thomas Edward O'Brien in the 1955 Lucky Bag; he too entered the Air Force. He retired as a Major in the mid-70s from Travis AFB, though, and was still alive as of the early 1980s. Also graduating in '55 was C.M. O'Brien. The 1952 Lucky Bag has two 4/c O'Briens; meaning Thomas H likely left USNA early in his 4/c year, before company photos were taken.
