David William Arthur

West Point, 1966

Be Thou At Peace

Posted by Ben D. Chlapek on November 14, 2016:

David was a true gentleman, gracious host, and incredible Army Officer. He was the officer-in-charge of the Cadet Chapel Choir in 1975/76 and the Tactical Officer for Company G-4. As a leader in the Class of 1966, he had the ability to impart an unusual amount of wisdom when counseling Cadets as a Tactical Officer and he did it in a professional yet humble fashion.

I'll always be grateful for his sound advice, his sense of humor, and his ability to provide calm and composed leadership when surrounded by chaos.

Well done, Sir. Be thou at peace . . .
