West Point, 1969

Be Thou At Peace

From the "Howitzer" -- 1969

"Johnnie Leland Welsh, Carson City, Nevada. C-2

"John's western heritage combined with his 'Brat' background have helped establish him as a casual but efficient individual. On the Goat-Engineer Gridiron, the wrestling mat and in the boxing ring, John has proven himself to be a fierce competitor. Aside from a few minor stand-offs with the Dean, he has gotten along with everyone from his brown boy to the Tactical Department. With those credentials and Cheri, we expect him to go far.

"Soccer 4; Lacrosse 3; German Club 4, 3; Russian Club 4; Debate Council and Forum 4,3; Slum 'n Gravy 3; Scoutmaster's Council 4, 3; Howitzer Staff 2, 1. Infantry."

USMA classmate, may you rest in peace.
