Lawrence Bohemar Wilkins

West Point, 1970

Be Thou At Peace

Posted by Russell Thompson on March 5, 2012:

Larry and I went to IOBC together after West Point graduation in 1970 and were subsequently assigned as Infantry platoon leaders in the same Mechanized Infantry company at Bamberg, Germany (3rd Brigade, 4th Armored Division). He was always a competent professional who I liked and respected. He demonstrated excellent judgement in his selection of a wife. Susie, Maralee, Larry, and I had many great times together over those first difficult years of our military professions. Though that was our only assignment together, we remained in contact. His loss at such a young age causes me to think sadly about the recent missed opportunities to see my old friend.
