Thomas was the son of Edwin T. Fraser and Gwendolyn J. Fraser of Detroit MI and he enlisted in the US Marine Corps on June 18 1968 in Detroit MI. Arriving in Vietnam on July 27, 1969 he was assigned for duty with H&HS-1, MWHG-1, 1st MAW at the Marble Mountain Air Field Facility in Da Nang, Quang Nam Province.

On April 3, 1970 at approximately 1830 Private Fraser and another Marine reported in at the guard shack as both men were on the color detail and it was nearing the evening for the Flag lowering ceremony. All the men in the room were having a friendly conversation when a Corporal who had been on duty picked up a .45 cal pistol, which had been left on his desk, lifted the weapon, extracted the magazine and pulled the trigger…to the surprise of everyone in the room there was a loud "bang", the weapon had discharged. First aid was immediately attempted on the mortally wounded Marine and he was transported and admitted at 1940 to the NAS USNH in Da Nang. All attempts failed at saving Private Fraser's life as his overall condition precluded neurosurgical treatment and he died at 0155 April 4, 1970.
