Michael Barszcz

West Point, 1969

Be Thou At Peace

From the "Howitzer" -- 1969

Michael Barszcz, Anchorage, Alaska. H-4

"Vowels may well be the only thing Mike lacks. Arriving from just about everywhere, Mike quickly put cadet life into his typical pattern -- save the best 'til last. His uncanny ability to get things done -- the right way -- in the shortest possible time make him invaluable to any endeavor. If he hadn't spoken so fast we might have discovered his secret; but we know that an Irish strain (and the luck that goes with it) will be in his future.

"Ski Club 4, 3, 2, 1; French Club 4, 3, 2, 1; Audio Club 2, 1; Fine Arts Forum 3, 2, 1; SCUSA 4, 3, 2, Chairman 1. Air Defense Artillery"

USMA classmate, may you rest in peace.
