Richard Keith McCarty

West Point, 1969

Be Thou At Peace

Posted by Bill Bahr, USMA '69 on February 21, 2019:

RICHARD KEITH McCARTY, Alexandria, Virginia, B-2.

From the "Howitzer" -- 1969

Rich was one of the great intellectuals to attend the military academy. Although no friend of the Engineering and Science departments, he knew more Social Science than most P's. An avid reader, this man's collection rivaled the library's. Above all this, Rich was one of the finest and most loyal friends any person could have. He never refused to help someone, even though it came as a great sacrifice of his own time.

USMA classmate, may you rest in peace.
