William Reed Canning

West Point, 1966

Be Thou At Peace

Posted by Ed Hathaway on March 10, 2014:

Did not know you well at West Point but heard the voice of KDET radio every morning and at many other times. Appreciated your sense of humor and songs that we all came to remember during our four years which today reminds us of special moments during our Cadet years. Will also remember our long talk at one of the reunions. And always enjoyed your sometimes witty,sometimes biting, and sometimes hitting home comments on our class blog. Be thou at peace and I am sure the Long Gray Line is better for you joining.
