James Gowen Boatner

West Point, 1951

Be Thou At Peace

Being a real goat, I never was with Jim in most formations or classes, but he was in the same Battalion (D-1). I always enjoyed seeing him for a quick "Hello". The "Howitzer " said it best, "that his philosophy was from Genghis Khan". A fine officer and friend to many.
