Maybe took that out because they thought it would confuse viewers to hear Sam talk about John Beckett's death when John is still alive in this episode, and Sam talks to him at the end. But changing it to "when they took it away from him" pretty much makes it canon that he was still alive when the farm was sold.

We also don't know what Tom did after he came home from Vietnam. He might not be eager to go back to doing farm work when he's had a position involving a lot of skill and responsibility in the military. He might stay in the navy, go to college, or go on to something else. Of course anyone can write that story any way they want. I just wanted to suggest a different alternative.
