Lance Ray Stewart

West Point, 1965

Be Thou At Peace

Posted by John B Roseberg on April 18, 2015:

Lance and I were roommates Yearling year. It was a very good year, in large part because of Lance. He was always immaculately turned out, eager, driven and fun to be with. From the worms eye view of a 20 year old, he was, to my mind, a man who, if he had stayed in the Army, would have worn stars. He was a good friend and the epitome of an infantry officer. We ran into each other at Ft. Knox when he was in the Armor Officers Advanced Course and again, by chance, on my first day in country on my second tour in Vietnam. He was just completing his second tour, then, and was planning to resign his commission. He did not discuss specifics, but his decision had to have been extremely difficult for him. Whatever the reason, or reasons, the Army lost a superb officer when he resigned. Rest in peace.
