Randall Arthur Carlson

West Point, 1970

Be Thou At Peace

Posted by Paul F. Benoit on October 13, 2011:

Randy was my first Table Commandant during Reorgy Week for the brand new Company I-4. Sitting at attention at the end of the table among 9 strangers, I was unprepared to respond to his inquiry on how the Delaware football team was expected to perform that season. As I floundered about, the giggling classmate Dick Klett seated to my immediate right did not make things better for me. I soon became an informed, if not dedicated, follower of the Delaware squad's fortunes. Over the next nine months, I learned what a goodhearted soul was Randy, and I remember with pleasure his spirited and skillful conducting of the cadet band in the mess hall. How fitting that he went on to serve in the United Nations peacekeeping forces. He has been an inspiration to me throughout my adult life.
