Tom was appointed the contractors Project Engineer on a lock and dam on the Tennessee-Tombigbee Waterway. Upon completion of his tenure on the waterway project, Tom transferred to one of the two air base projects President Carter promised to build for Israel as part of the agreement for Israel to return the Sinai to Egypt. The air base program was very successful, completing ahead of schedule and the Sinai was returned to Egypt.
