Leon Ryno Yourtee

West Point, 1964

Be Thou At Peace

Posted by George F. Smith on March 21, 2003:

It is hard to believe that it is almost 10 years since Leon joined that "ghostly assemblage." I expect to see him, as I usually did, at the most unexpected places. My fondest recent memory was our reunion at Mike Cook's Retirement Party at Fort Myer - Leon and I could communicate simply with a look, a grin, or a laugh. I thought of him while attending Howie Bachman's son's wedding in Alabama last weekend, as Mike Cook, Sam Burney, and I joined Howie in a mini-'64 reunion. I felt Leon's presence....and I miss him.
