Harold A. Jenkins

West Point, 1965

Be Thou At Peace

Posted by Dan Christman on October 2, 2020:

From the opening scene in the movie Chariots of Fire, "We are here today to give thanks for the life of Harold....to honor a legend ... to remember those few young men with hope in our hearts and wings in our heels." Our Harold was the legend of our era, no less than was Harold Abrahams in 1924 Great Britain. The Jenkins legacy of athletic grace and deep, boundless character will endure at West Point forever.

"Bring me my spear, o clouds unfold. Bring me my chariots of Fire." Thank you, Lord, for bringing us Harold Augustus Jenkins Jr. May you Rest In Peace, Hal, You have inspired us, and the generations that follow, deeply and emotionally. We will never forget you, and the beautiful course you have run.
