Robert Andrews Bassett

West Point, 1969

Be Thou At Peace

From the "Howitzer" -- 1969

ROBERT ANDREWS BASSETT, San Diego, California, B-4

With Bob West Point was a family tradition, and he strove to attain the Academy's mission. A Californian with guts and determination -- the prime mover in B-4's wing-T formation. On Dean's List Bob was a permanent feature. In every way, he was Thayer's creature. Admire him we must; respect him we do. One question remains: Will Bobby be true? For blessed with a girl from the heavens above, Bob's theme song will always be: "Whom Do You Love?"

Air Defense Artillery.

USMA classmate, may you rest in peace.
