Thomas C. Schafer

West Point, 1969

Be Thou At Peace

Posted by Bill Bahr, USMA '69 on October 7, 2016:

From the "Howitzer" -- 1969


Tommy "Turtle," known by all as a great guy with a fantastic sense of humor, really has the rhythm and moves. He can shake with the best of them, on the dance floor, knows the words to every song since 1958, and still finds time to wrestle for Army at 145. It's hard to keep a straight face if he's in the same room with Tom for longer than two minutes, but his roommate reports that after two solid years of "Bad Poop Schafer" your attitude has to improve -- after all even antagonizing the "Com" or "Supe" can only result in "General Corrections." Hats off to his roommate!

Wrestling 4, 3, 2, 1; Fine Arts Forum 2, 1; Sunday School Teacher 4, 3, 2, 1; Protestant Discussion Group 3, 2, 1. Infantry

USMA classmate, may you rest in peace.
