Robert Peter Johnson

West Point, 1955

Be Thou At Peace

Posted by Bob Wray '55 on January 27, 2003:

What a shock to hear that Bob's voice was stilled. He was brave enough to point out that the Emperor wasn't wearing clothes. And he was willing to take the consequences of those straightforward assessments in stride. West Point, the military, and the nation have lost a man who took seriously the concepts of Duty, Honor, Country; a man who expected those concepts to be the most vigorously defended at USMA. Bob was not afraid to address his concerns to those who fell short of the ideals he adopted as a Cadet since he saw no reason to feel that the passage of time should modify those concepts. Our Class Net will never be the same without him. Well done, thou good and faithful servant.
