Ronald Bruce Bael Bailey

West Point, 1965

Be Thou At Peace

Posted by William Byrne on July 24, 2021:

Ron and I were roommates during Beast and our yearling year. He was instrumental in not only getting me through Beast intact but also keeping me from a sophomore slump. Since my family lived a short distance from West Point we tried to repay Ron with picnics at Lee Gate, but I will be forever in his debt. When the class divided after yearling year we maintained contact through the Army water polo club and roomed together on trips. Like many classmates have stated, he was a loyal friend. At the 40th reunion we finally met again and exchanged lies like old friends do. He minimized his health problems but I understood that he would not attend any more reunions. Anyone who knew Ron was a better person for knowing him. Condolences to his family. We grip hands, Ron, Be thou at peace
