Donald Gene Kurtz

West Point, 1965

Be Thou At Peace

Posted by Jon King on January 22, 2008:

Don you were a wonderful friend and colleague throughout our time at West Point together.

I was very fortunate to share many experiences with you as we were both in the Jewish Chapel Squad, the Jewish Glee Club, and took many trips together throughout our four years at West Point.

Don you always had a wonderful sense of humor and were always quick to point out the "key points" of cadet life where we were able to share various war stories together.

Later, during airborne and ranger schools Don, I was fortunate to share many challenges with you. I will always fondly remember Don as someone who always had a positive spin on whatever was happening and always had a great sense of humor regardless of how bad things might look.

Don I miss you and pray that you are now home with the Lord.

Your friend Always,

Jon King '65
