Michael Momcilovich

West Point, 1965

Be Thou At Peace

Posted by David Lawrence on October 31, 2004:

Michael Momcilovich was quiet individual who married my oldest sister, Lynn in a full honors military wedding in Wilmington, Delaware. I was 12 and they were both 22 when they were married. I thought the world of my sister so I know Michael was a great guy. I didn't get a chance to really know the man, but I remember meeting Michael a couple of years earlier when they briefly lived in our neighborhood. My sister brought him over to our house and he spoke very softly and was very well groomed. I remember how handsome he was and how he looked over a toy gun that I had and seemed to know everything there was about the military. That's because Mike's dad was himself a military man who had retired the Army as a full Colonel. Mike would go on to West Point and graduate and then attend flight school at Fort Rucker, ALA. My sister and Mike had a daughter named Kristen. Mike only saw her briefly after she was born, but I know that she made him so proud and that he must have loved her very much. It still saddens me to think of his death, but I am proud that he was so willing to serve his country... particularly at that time in our history. God bless you Michael Momcilovich.
