Joseph Jay Wheeler

West Point, 1969

Be Thou At Peace

From the "Howitzer" a 1969

"Joseph Jay Wheeler, Barrett, Minnesota, D-1

"'Wheels'' abandoned attitude and broad grin could never quite hide his depth and sincerity. An all-around guy, he had all the moves in skiing and winning women. Never really challenged by the Academic Departments, he survived the four year ordeal with little difficulty. His uncanny ability to find humor in the darkest situation made him an asset to any group. To be his friend was an honor which many held.

USMA classmate and Regiment-mate, may you rest in peace.
