Daniel Edgar Speilman

West Point, 1965

Be Thou At Peace

Posted by Wes Taylor (Wesley B. Taylor,Jr.) on July 11, 2019:

We did not know one another well, as cadets.

We only served together at the Infantry Officer's Advanced Course in 1968-1969. I was a young infantry officer, between tours in Vietnam. You obviously, were one of the exemplary Armor officers to have been chosen to join us.

As I recall you were an Armor Officer. You talked often of your dream to become a doctor. I hope that happened. I know that you would have become one of the Medical Corps' best.

You were a 'bright star' then, and you have obviously remained one through all the years.

I respected you then, as I do now. You are, and will always be a classmate.
