Jimmy Morton Ford

West Point, 1969

Be Thou At Peace

Posted by Sharon Smith on May 7, 1998:

I went to high school with Jimmy (Beaver) Ford. Our entire junior year all we heard was, "BEAVER FORD'S BEEN ACCEPTED AT WEST POINT!! He was so honored and so proud to be a future cadet.

I was very saddened and shocked to hear of his being killed in Viet Nam. America lost a true hero that day.
