Be Thou At Peace

From the "Howitzer" - 1969

"Gerry Hubert Armstrong, West Cosina, California A-1

"Gerry came to us as an Army brat and a poop-schooler. The one thing he cares about is shaking hands with Linda. He is known on campus for his now-famous 'Armstrong Curl,' which is a lock of hair curling around his right eye and which reached his upper lip at peak performance. If he were able to amass as much money while playing the stock market, as he was at amassing hours on the area, he would be able to pay cash for his car.

"Century Club 3, 2, 1. Transportation Corps"

USMA classmate and First Regiment-mate, rest in peace....
