Be Thou At Peace

From the "Howitzer" -- 1969

"Howard LeROY Hellerstedt, Moose Lake, Minnesota. B-4

"A loyal friend always, Howie never compromises where his principles are at stake. He is a man you can count on to do what he says, regardless of the cost. With a fine mind, a strong will, and an unfailing sense of humor, Howie will be a solid officer -- but, more importantly, he is a man from whom others can take example and whose friendship we all value.

"Cadet Band 4, 3, 2, 1; Portuguese Club 3, 2, 1; Military Affairs Club 2, 1: Baptist Student Union 3, 2, 1; Class Committee 2, 1. Corps of Engineers."

USMA classmate, may you rest in peace.
