James Edward Walkenbach

West Point, 1969

Be Thou At Peace

From the "Howitzer" - 1969

"James Edward Walkenbach, St. Louis, Missouri. C-4

"No one quite understands why Jim came to West Point. It seemed to us high school products that he had done everything before blessing West Point with his numerous abilities, insight and a knack for keeping company commanders straight. Never one to study when there's a bridge game going, he found himself unfortunately out of most of athletics thanks to a pair of butchered knees. A man of countless talents and winning personality -- 'Walk's' a sure bet for 'most likely to succeed.'

"Hop Manager 4, 3, 2, 1; Behavioral Science Club 2; Baseball 4. Medical Service Corps."

Remembered in Memorial Book, Association of Graduates, Herbert Hall (2nd Fl), West Point.

USMA classmate, may you rest in peace.
