John Michael Deems

West Point, 1965

Be Thou At Peace

Posted by Guenter Hennig on July 9, 2009:

When I heard that you had passed on I was saddened , even though I only knew you as cadet. Of all the classmates that played soccer for Joe Palone, I can say that you were my best friend and booster of the team. You talked to us and kept our spirits up as goal keeper and scored goals as striker ... a man of all talents. We had a good time on the team and the bus and sang 'Lili Marlene'.
I know that you are in good hands now and forever.
