Emmanuel John Scivoletto

West Point, 1961

Be Thou At Peace

Posted by BG RM Ong (Ret) on January 14, 2022:

I am saddened to learn that Manny Scivoletto has passed away.

I remember him only as a Cadet, during our 2 years together. I was a Plebe in a neighboring Company -- and he was 2 years my senior -- but somehow we met and became friends. Manny once said that he "recognized" me because I was one of the few Cadets who could pronounce his surname correctly. I must credit my 4 years of high school Latin for that achievement.

Manny had a great sense of humor, an engaging smile, and an air of optimism around him. He never failed to greet me with a smile, each time our paths crossed. He showed genuine concern about my performance in Plebe Year academics and was pleased to learn that I was on the "Dean's List".

We said our goodbyes when Manny graduated -- and our paths never crossed again. He served his country, while I served mine -- in our full military careers.

Well done, Manny! Be thou at peace!

And now, my final salute to a nice guy, a good friend and a fellow soldier...
