Hugh Frederick Scruggs

West Point, 1965

Be Thou At Peace

Going to miss you, Fred. Coming from Hawaii, I heard of coveralls, but you were the first one I ever saw wearing one. And I never heard your accent before, not even close to pidgin English. It was neat to see the bullet hole in the trunk of your new GTO supposedly while running moonshine in Harlan county.

It was appropriate that one of your assignments was the Mountain Ranger Camp in Dahlonega. I bet that you were one of the Ranger Instructors who could walk on water if you had a running start.
Yes, I will definitely miss you at our subsequent get-togethers.

SYOTOS (See You On The Other Side).

Rangers lead the way.
