Harold Paul Kindleberger

West Point, 1964

Be Thou At Peace

Posted by Nicholas Seidel on January 24, 2023:

Class of 2003 here.

Recently came across some super 8 footage of my mother's that I had digitally transferred. The 43sec clip (link below) depicts a portion of GEN MacArthur's NYC funeral procession down 3rd Avenue on April 8, 1964.

After some research in the official archive, I found the description, found here: https://history.army.mil/books/Last_Salute/Ch24.htm

Cadet Kindleberger is mentioned as "personal flag bearer". I looked him up and found my way to his eulogy page.

Just appreciated the opportunity to Grip Hands in the hopes that it may provide someone peace.

Please find the video here on my YouTube page: https://youtu.be/5MjCCug0asI
