Donald Eugene Appler

West Point, 1965

Be Thou At Peace

I probably would not have made it through Beast were it not for my roommate Don Appler. I could not figure out how to shine shoes but Done had it down pat and was an excellent and patient teacher for the whole squad. This might have contributed to the fact that our Beast squad was the only one in the class to graduate intact. I loved this guy but was not alone.
