James Michael Hennen

West Point, 1965

Be Thou At Peace

Posted by Thomas S. Abraham on August 10, 2022:

I played varsity football with Jimmy. He was tough and good but plagued by a terrible knee injury. Don't remember when his career was cut short and I believe his injury kept him from being commissioned. I could look it up but that's not what I want to say about Jimmy Hennen. For those who might not have known him he was a good guy. One who's friendship and humor took the edge off a place like West Point in the 60's. I remember my friend Jim and always will. As I do with all my friends. Till the next formation, Jimmy. Save me a place in line. Well done. Memory eternal.
