Paul Coburn Sawtelle

West Point, 1969

Be Thou At Peace

Posted by Doug Fitzgerald on December 13, 2006:

In our senior year, I served with Paul on the 2nd Regimental Staff. He was the XO and the straightest, strakest (sp?) cadet in the Corps. When Tom MacCaslin and I snuck in from watching Super Bowl III at a bar in Highland Falls, I think we were more scared of Paul catching us than of any of the Tacs. I was in Germany when I heard of Paul's passing. He was really too good an officer to lose.
