Ira Dorsey

West Point, 1960

Be Thou At Peace

Posted by Cy Stapleton on April 1, 2016:

Ira was a fine man and a good friend. He was responsible for one of my most memorable moments at West Point. Ira was the only cadet I ever "coached." Academically I was near the bottom of my class and was always in need of coaching in math. However, German was an easy subject for me. Ira and I were in the same German class and words that contained "umlauts" were impossible for him. But, like everything else in his outstanding career, after a few hours he mastered the umlaut. RIP, my friend.
