Be Thou At Peace

Dear Mr. & Mrs. Tiffner and Family:
It is never easy to lose a loved one and unfathomable to lose a child. There is nothing I can say to assuage your grief.
I hope you will find some comfort in knowing that our thoughts and prayers are with Ben and you and your family. Your son will always be remembered by his fellow soldiers, classmates, and Alma Mater as a patriot and hero who chose to serve his country over self and paid the ultimate sacrafice for the freedom of others.
I did not know Ben personally while he was at WP, and he would likely tell you that that was a good thing! However,as the BTO during his time as a cadet I can tell you that each day I was amazed at the tremendous young men and women with whom I had the privilege to serve and among whom I number your son.
God bless Ben and God bless you and your family. For Ben "May it be said well done, be thou at peace" - He is an American hero.
Col (Ret), US Army
USMA '72, BTO - '97 - '01
