Mark Carl Galton

West Point, 1964

Be Thou At Peace

Posted by Bob Gelb on May 30, 2002:

Mark and I were fellow 2nd Lt.'s in the 1st squadron, 17th Cavalry.
Both, our first assignment in the 82nd Airborne Division. Mark was a
good friend of mine. We enjoyed hanging around, listening to Hermans Hermit's and driving around in his MGB convertible, which I used to take care of when he was gone. I was surprised to learn of his death, but always fondly remember our initiation into real Army life, and our mutual experiences as platoon leaders in the Dominican Republic.
