Robert Peter Johnson

West Point, 1955

Be Thou At Peace

Posted by Jack Campbell on January 26, 2003:

I first met Bob in the boxing ring during our Plebe year. He was A-1 and I was B-1, so we shared many classes. From West Point days to now, we rarely agreed on issues, but I think we always respected each other. More often than not tho, from then to now, I was the one that ended up with the bloody nose. I just couldn't believe the message this morning saying he was gone.

Agree with him or not, no one can ever say he didn't make you think.
Agree with him or not no one can ever say he didn't love West Point.
Agree with him or not, no one can ever say that they'll forget him.
Agree with him or not, no one can ever say they won't miss him.

My heart felt sympathy goes out to Bob's family and my prayers go out to Bob. As I'm sure he would say, GRIP HANDS!

Carry on...
