Omar Edwin Rood

West Point, 1965

Be Thou At Peace

Ohms was always fun to be with. His inquisitive mind and wry sense of humor were likely to set one to thinking about whatever the subject of his interest was. Yet, Omar was rather quiet, almost shy. He certainly hid his light under a basket. A man of many accomplishments, one might never know it by just being around him. He was also a gentle soul. I am proud to have been a B-1 company mate of this wonderful human being!
