William A. Illingworth

West Point, 1969

Be Thou At Peace

Posted by Bill Bahr, USMA '69 on May 5, 2007:

From the "Howitzer" - 1969

"William Arthur Illingworth, Greenville, Rhode Island. A-3

"If ever a man got nearly maximum utility out of his first 21 years of life, that man is Bill. As the genuine 'Go-Getter' that he is, Bill takes every challenge and puts 100% into it -- 'All the way and then some more!' He leads by example, ask any trooper in the 325th -- even off duty, handling the 'Fayette-cong' and a table full of pitchers. His is a great beginning for a career in the infantry blue.

"Behavioral Science Club 3, 2, 1; Military Affairs Club 2, 1; Fine Arts Forum 3, 2, 1; Protestant Chapel Acolyte 2, 1; Airborne School 2. Infantry."

USMA classmate, may you rest in peace.
