John Michael Deems

West Point, 1965

Be Thou At Peace

Posted by Don Hall on October 10, 2009:

Michael, you were a friend who would go above and beyond what could have been expected. You waited for 3 days after graduation to serve as an usher at my wedding, even though I am sure you needed to get started on your career. We were not that close as cadets, but you were a respected, stand-up guy who befriended people in all levels of our class. That's just the way you were-- humble, down-to-earth, and helpful to anyone. It was an honor to have known you. I have and will always remember you throughout my life. Don Hall
