John Clarke Yeisley

West Point, 1969

Be Thou At Peace

Posted by John Lucas on August 9, 2017:

1969 Howitzer: "Discontented with college life, he came to us from the shores of Massachusetts and a campus nearby. 'Yeis,' as he is called by 'The Boys,' has excelled in 'Juice,' in the classroom, and in the barracks; he has furthermore received many hours of reward for his diligent dedication to duty. As a roommate, card partner, and friend, he met each challenge West Point had to offer and is sure to succeed in whatever he may try.

Lacrosse 4,3,2; Soccer 4; Century Club 2,1."

Somehow I think that Yeis would get a kick out of the mention of the "many hours of reward for his diligent dedication to duty," coupled with the reference to his last extra-curricular activity.

RIP brother.
