Be Thou At Peace

From the "Howitzer" - 1969

"John Cranwell Fitz-Henry, Canton, Illinois, A-4

"Well ... it's awfully hard to get a tank started especially when the treads are loose and everyone is sabotaging the works. 'Tank' is the first cadet to stay under his brown boy and fight everyone for four years. His USMA rack record will never be touched. His brown boy developed calluses because 'Tank's' philosophy was that occasionally rack time ran into class time. The eerie glow of science fiction permeated 'Tank's' presence; and the reason he was late to class was because the warp generators were broken ... Sir the offense was unintentional!

USMA classmate, rest in peace....
