Mark Andess Garner

West Point, 2002

Be Thou At Peace

Posted by John Stevens on July 9, 2009:

I am so deeply saddened at your loss. My wife and I have one son who graduated from West Point in '07 and a second son who is a new plebe. I am an artist and every time I step into my shop, I know that is possible only because boys like ours stand ready to do the toughest work in a free society. What I create in my studio seems inconsequential compared to the price that our military pays for my priviledges and freedoms, but they do not ask me to justify what I do -- they simply do what they have been trained to do. We are indebted to every man and woman in uniform. Please accept our gratitude for your son's selfless service and our sincere sympathy for your loss.
