My dad spoke fondly of that time in his life and was extremely proud of having been a part of the tradition of the United States Military Academy, if only for a short time. I believe it set the course for the rest of his life, in which there were many successes.  I have no doubt that he would have wanted to be included in the last roll call and I appreciate your thoughtfulness.

Lester D. Bieri, Jr.
