Hugh Frederick Scruggs

West Point, 1965

Be Thou At Peace

Posted by Pat Kenny on December 2, 2016:

My most vivid memory of Ranger School, and one I have shared with many folks over the years, took place at Camp Merrill, which will be Fred's final resting place. Patrolling on a very dark, rainy, and chilly night, caused more than the usual number of trips and falls making it, overall, a rather miserable experience. Trudging along Fred stated in his slow manner: "This may not be the most miserable night in my life but it sure ranks in the top 10." Fred's comment caused lots of laughter and Ranger student morale immediately improved.
