Daren M Hidalgo
West Point, 2009
Be Thou At Peace
Posted by Nate Pulliam on February 23, 2011:
Daren was one of the best friends of my daughter, Katie, and her fiancé, Dimitri, both Daren's classmates at West Point. It all started Buckner summer. Yesterday to honor Daren, Katie changed her Facebook profile picture to one of her and Daren together at Buckner, both smiling, both looking so happy, and captioned it "May it be said 'well done, be thou at peace.'" I got to chat with Daren several times, most recently at Dimitri's Ranger School graduation party last May. I've never met a nicer, friendlier person. I've been deeply mourning Daren's loss since I found out two days ago, and it has affected me profoundly. My thoughts and prayers are with the Hidalgo family. May God abundantly bless them, as well as all of our soldiers, sailors, airmen, and marines, and their families. And to Daren, I echo Katie's words from the West Point Alma Mater: May it be said "well done," my son, "be thou at peace."
