West Point, 1969

Be Thou At Peace

From the "Howitzer" -- 1969

Ronald Dale McAdoo. Bloomfield, Missouri. G-2

"'Doo Man,' a short stub of a fellow who spent most of his time in a grouch, had an extremely well developed muscle around his waist. Having a preference for cutoffs and his Missouri sweat-shirt over dress gray when in Pittsburgh, the TD helped persuade him to change his dressing standards. The Bloomfield wildcat was a cinch to be found on the basketball court on off movie nights and was a reliable source of cigarettes for the 45th. Known for his famous 'sit-ons,' he will be one of the upcoming faces in the Army.

"Glee Club 3, 2, 1. Signal Corps"

USMA classmate and Signal Corps colleague, may you rest in peace.
