Richard Elmo Hood

West Point, 1966

Be Thou At Peace

Posted by Austin Snipes on March 17, 2014:

I knew Richard throughout junior high and high school. Richard always strived to be the best. Completing West Point and leading an infantry platoon shows the type of character he had. I was a Marine in Vietnam the same time Richard was there. I was saddened to hear of his death. The world is a lesser place without him.

Rest in peace Richard.
