James D. Greenlee

West Point, 1969

Be Thou At Peace

Jimmy Greenlee didn't have an enemy. I swear it. Smart, talented and so full of life. He played 150 pound football and did so awfully well. He could run. Somehow, he got it into his head that he could bulk up and make the A team. Day after day he would return from the mess hall with eight or ten cartons of milk and whatever else could somehow bulk him up. It wasn't too long before that 5'10" frame was sporting about 200 lbs and somehow one day he was busting into the Rutgers line for three or four yards a pop.

I loved your friendship Jimmy. I cried the day you died in your beloved Corvette. A-1 misses ya still.
