Donald Eugene Appler

West Point, 1965

Be Thou At Peace

Posted by Jose Sanchez on April 15, 2018:

I remember very clearly meeting Don and the rest of the squad with the longevity record on that hot July 5, 1961. Don looked like the soldier he was. I also thought that he was one tough hombre. He helped us survive Beast. I consider myself fortunate to have beeen one of his Beast roommates and a member of our unique squad.
Don, it has been an honor to have been your friend and Classmate. Well Done, Be Thou at Peace.
See you on the high ground. See you on the other side.
Joe Sanchez '65
