Joseph Paul Sowa

West Point, 1969

Be Thou At Peace

Posted by Bill Bahr, USMA '69 on May 21, 2007:

From the "Howitzer" - 1969

"Joseph Paul Sowa, Aberdeen, Maryland, B-2

"Joe coupled an active athletic program with a policy of intense rest and relaxation to further his outlook of 'Why do it today if it can be put off til tomorrow.' Notwithstanding the evil intentions of the Academic Department, 'The Old Man' managed to achieve maximum utility from home study lessons and mid-periods. His belief that, 'All good things come to those who wait' was further edited by sleepily murmured 'Wait Comfortable.'

"Outdoor Sportsman's Club 3, 1; Corps Squad Soccer 4, 3, 2, 1; Corps Squad Pistol 4, 3, 2, 1; Corps Squad Golf 4, 3; Fine Arts Forum 3, 1; Pistol Club 4, 3. Infantry."

"Assembly" Memorial Article: May/June 1997. Remembered in Memorial Book, Association of Graduates, Herbert Hall (2nd Fl), West Point.

USMA classmate, may you rest in peace.
