Hugh Frederick Scruggs

West Point, 1965

Be Thou At Peace

Posted by Fred W (Tim) Timmerman on November 30, 2016:

My memory harkens back to a Ranger Buddy who always will be remembered as a special person. I would try to throw him in the hand to hand pit and by the time I got him over my shoulder his feet would still be on the ground. It was like Mutt and Jeff. Then he would throw me and it was like going into orbit. But he would always bend down and ask "You ok buddy" such was the humility and caring nature of Fred. You will be missed. Godspeed Ranger Buddy!
