Joseph Jay Wheeler

West Point, 1969

Be Thou At Peace

Posted by Bill Murray on April 11, 2017:

I met Jay on my first assignment with C Battery 1/94 Field Artillery in Furth Germany in 1970. Jay was a "seasoned" 1st LT Airborne/Ranger and I was a newly minted ROTC 2LT. Jay was a great guy and a good friend. We had many great times, mostly at the officers club and at the local gasthaus and cruising on his BSA motorcycle. As noted previously, Jay loved life and the ladies. He lived life to the full. RIP Jay.
