Richard Elmo Hood

West Point, 1966

Be Thou At Peace

Posted by Carol Shirah Reese on March 17, 2014:

Richard and I shared classes in high school and he was an excellent example of leadership, responsibility, and caring.

I had a son in the Marine Corp and know what it is like to worry over their safety.

Richard gave the ultimate sacrifice for this country and I pray each day that his rewards are great in the kingdom of God. Rest in peace. Final Taps.
