John Glimis Pappas

West Point, 1966

Be Thou At Peace

Posted by Thomas (Tom) Miller on February 18, 2014:

If one were charged with picking one word to best describe John, it would have to be "tenacious". Whether it be playing intramural sports, rugby or a pick-up game of flag football on the Plain, John was tenacious. The same can be said when it came to John's actions in the sky over Vietnam, his willingness to help a friend in need or walking off hours in Central Area. And, most importantly, John was tenacious in his outpouring of love to his family.
