John Bruce Gailey

West Point, 1965

Be Thou At Peace

Posted by John Vann on October 2, 2017:

Bruce was a beloved member of our class, and especially by the members of Company M-1, where we grew to know him as a brilliant, soft-spoken, caring man with a great sense of humor who devoted countless hours helping others. He always had a gentle demeanor, and reminded those of us who knew him well of a Bradley rather than a Patton. Many of us wished we had Bruce's sponge-like mind that remembered everything so effortlessly, and appreciated his willingness to share his gifts. The Army missed a bet by not elevating him to the highest levels, but we had the honor and privilege to know Bruce in the ways that matter most.....as a caring, loving man who will always be remembered with a smile. We look forward to joining him one day where we know he is now. God Bless You, Bruce. We miss you.
