Richard Eldridge Coleman

West Point, 1965

Be Thou At Peace

Posted by John Longhouser on April 18, 2018:

Dick was a dear friend of mine. During our time at West Point, and many years thereafter. I will remember Dick as a caring and true colleague. His focus was on others, rather than himself. He encouraged me when I needed just that.He harassed me when I deserved to be harassed. He inspired me to choose the tougher road when faced with easier propositions.He will be missed by all who knew him. I know I will always remember Dick. Be Thou at Peace.
