Thomas Smith

Thomas Smith, who served as a sergeant in the Korean War and was a jack of all trades, has been featured in a national magazine.


Smith currently lives at Life Care Center of North Glendale, Arizona, a skilled nursing and rehabilitation center run by Life Care Centers of America. The company manages more than 200 centers around the country and publishes a handful of residents’ life stories each year in its LEADER magazine. Smith’s story was recently published in the 2018 edition.


Smith, who bought his first home with cash at age 19, is the textbook example of a hard-working servant. His life-long ingenuity was driven by a desire to be helpful and bless other people. For his service in Korea, he received a thank-you ribbon from the South Korean government, one of only 30 in existence. Yet Smith notes that his accomplishments are only due to the gifts God gave him.


“God put before me different things to do in life that enabled me to help people along the way,” said Smith.


His incredible journey in service was just beginning.
