Richard Allen Boerckel

West Point, 1965

Be Thou At Peace

Posted by Bob and Pauline deLaar on July 11, 2018:

Rich and I returned to West Point in the early seventies as instructors in the Earth, Space, and Graphic Sciences Deparment. We were both newlyweds and the two couples enjoyed many fun times. In all the years since, there has never been anyone who could make a strawberry daiquiri quite as good those Rich made on the veranda of our North Side apartment!
Our paths diverged but we are grateful to have had Rich and Jean in our lives during those early years.
