Ring Melt

Dear Classmates,

On Monday 7 March, I was privileged and honored to attend the 11th annual West Point Ring Memorial Program, often called the Ring Melt as your representative and as a donor. The Program is one of the services that the West Point Association of Graduates, WPAOG, provides to the graduates and their families. To learn more about this program you can visit the AOG web site, http://www.westpointaog.org

President Kennedy’s Graduation Address to the Class of 1962

Most college graduates when asked who gave their graduation address and what did they say do not have any recollection. Well, for some unknown reason, I have a copy of the White House press release of President Kennedy’s remarks to us. Each time I read them they become more timeless. Inasmuch as we just passed the 36th anniversary of our graduation, I’m sending JFK’s remarks in their entirety. I have no idea how this came into my possession, but I thought you all might like a copy of it.

“Can Do”

mac-death3
In May General MacArthur told us what to expect and what he expected of us.  Many of us have his DUTY, HONOR AND COUNTRY farewell address to the Cadet Corps hanging on our walls.

We Graduated 6 June 1962, the 18th Anniversary of D-Day. President Kennedy gave us his expectations of us at our Graduation.
We gave President Kennedy a Class Ring, which now is displayed in the West Point Library.

Caught 10 passes against Michigan, as a defensive back out played many receivers, either intercepting or having the opponent called for offense interference.  Tom had said “I have the goal of becoming a hard-nosed football player”  He certainly was. When Glen Blumhardt went out spitting teeth, Coach Dale Hall asked Tom if he could block Mike Ditka – Tom said “Yes”? On the first play Tom was responsible for blocking Mike. When Tom returned to the huddle, he said “Well I blocked him but I can’t see”. Tom’s nose was sticking out the ear hole of the helmet.

Grandson of  Joe Stilwell the Commanding General China Burma India Theater WW II  China_Burma_India_Seal.svg.png
I was basketball manager. My fondest memories were watching Stu Sherard perform. He had the smoothest jump shot I have ever seen, and witnessing him pile up Academy and National records was a real pleasure. He certainly was a very consistent performer.   I will also never forget Bob Loupe scoring the winning basket in our victory over Navy in 1962. After three years of losing to Navy, it was a very emotional win.  Added by a Friend – John has traveled to China on a number of occasions and has assisted in 1991 the People’s Republic of China establishment of the Stilwell Museum in Chongqing to honor his service to China.  John Retired as a Colonel after 22 years in the Signal Corps.

Purple_Heart_Medal.png  1/17/1965 Thurston A.  (Turk) Griffith  25th Inf.jpeg
Starting guard and key contributor on Army’s 150-pound 1961 football team. KIA Vietnam 1/17/65.  Turk and  I were in the basic officer’s course together at Fort Gordon, GA. Turk (and others) played on a touch football team. The team was stacked with former college players and had its way with the other teams in the league.Turk played on the inside of the offensive line and had a much larger varsity college player on his outside. The other teams would frequently complain that Turk was not abiding by the rules and I can vividly remember the referee getting right up on the line to try to catch Turk doing something illegal.Now I am sure Turk would never do anything outside the rules, but since the referee was shielded from seeing everything by the player to Turk’s outside, Turk was never called for an infraction.Griffith Hall at Fort Gordon is, of course, named for Turk. It is a BOQ or VOQ and, I am told, has recently been renovated – – by John Easterbrook

Against Wisconsin he was head butted.  The Ref asked if he was OK, Buzz told Coach to fix him. Coach Alitz stuffed his nose with tissue, waved his ever ready ammonia capsule, and Buzz stepped back on the mat.  When Buzz grabbed his opponent, lifted him high in the air, the Ref said let him down gently.  Buzz did and pinned him, providing 5 points of the 23 and 8 win.  On Christmas leave, on an unheated Air Force transport, Frank Reasoner’s feet were frozen, Buzz unzipped his dress jacket, and had Frank push his feet against Buzzy’s chest. Oh lastly, Jeannine was in the stands at Wisconsin, Buzz might have executed as he did for her benefit.  (Write up by a Team Mate)

Bob’s keen sense of humor and loquacious personality always kept the basketball team in high spirits and the airways of KDET lively. Bob, however, will always be remembered for scoring the winning basket during the Army-Navy basketball game of 1962. In the waning moments of the game with both Stu & Al out, he brought the ball up court, his eyes became fixed on the basket, he drove to it, and lifted the ball to the final points of the game.

Chairman of the Cadet Honor Committee.  Doctor serving the Pittsburg community.
During June Week 1962, at the corner of Grant Hall,  John Selby and Jim Kays bumped into George Schein as George was headed out to meet his soon to be wife Diana.  George asked how I was doing, studying for an Ordnance Department Turnout.  John said something like – He is in the rack and has not been studying.  George immediately turned around running back into South Area, asking which Room?   I was in the rack when the door crashed open and I heard the leather soles hit the concrete floor as I pretended to be asleep – maybe he would go away.  Suddenly my bed was lifted and I was thrown against the wall. I got up saw who it was laughed and said “George!”.  He said get over at that desk and study.  He returned once and I was at the desk. The Turnout was easy.  To this day whenever a woman with spikes hits a concrete floor, I flinch.  By a Friend

We became the Class of 1962 on 1 July 1958. From our original 815, we Graduated 601 on the 6th of June 1962.

The Upper Classes insured we understood and appreciated what had gone before.

The 1953 Football Season was one that touched both our need to appreciate the success of Army Football and our training in our Honor Code.

As a kid, one Classmate would climb a tall old oak tree on the North end of Michie to watch his Army Heroes play each Saturday. To this day he can still rattle off many of the names of the ’53 Team.

Another Classmate’s Father took him to the Duke Game. To many, that may be Army’s Greatest Game.

In the years since our Graduation, the Cadet Corps has lost touch with not just the success of the 1953 Football Team but what the 1953 – 1954 Corps of Cadets actually accomplished.

We, members of the Class of 1962 cannot accept that. Room 405 links today’s Corps of Cadets and all future Cadet Corps with a piece of their Heritage.

Col. Blaik said to the Team after the Navy Game ” —- you have done more for Football at West Point than any other team in the history of the Academy”

Many members of the Class of 1962, and Wives of some we have lost, thank the 1953 -1954 Corps of Cadets for what they did for our Alma Mater.

Morris Herbert – Class of 1950 “Number of us (classmates) listened to the ’53 Navy Game on the radio — it was at Fort Bliss. We were all 1st Lts or Captains. When Pat Uebel scored his 3rd touchdown of the day, one of my classmates leaped up in glee, and accidentally sat down in the bowl of potato salad!

“Jesse Faber Class of 2012 – As a Yearling Jesse attempted to have his Class support the Nomination of the ’53 Team for the Army Sports Hall of Fame. The Academy Staff determined Cadets should not have any role in the Nomination process. Thanks for your support Jesse.

WHO WAS THIS ??
His Dad took him to the ’53 Army Duke Game. He still recalls the sound of
The Bugles, The Drums, The Chanting –
The Incessant Chanting – GO! GO!! GO!!!

PLEASE TELL ME OF ANY ERRORS YOU IDENTIFY

1.  I know this is messy – I am addressing issues as I work out the
wrinkles.

2.  The below listing of Class accomplishments will hang in The Thayer Hotel’s Room 405 Honoring the 1953 1954 Corps of Cadets and their Football Team.  I want visitors to know what ’62 did. What we did for our Country.  The Room is fully paid for, but you must send me a donation (or something) if you wish to be included in the listing.  It is a listing  of ’62 Donors.

3.  The Core Contributors were the first to ever Donate.

4.  If you do not wish to be listed please tell me. Even if you do not wish to be listed, Please consider writing one for a Roommate, Teammate or someone you really respect.

5.  As for length – Denny Reimer wanted to reduce his listing as it was too long.  I said no because I wanted “These are my Credentials”  in Denny’s write up.

3.  The names I am adding requires me to use our Howitzer, 2010 Register of Graduates, and ’62 Contacts (for Wife names).   I tried indicating Classmates or Wives lost by Bold or Italic, but it does not work.  You will see how Vietnam losses are listed.

4.  Send your desired listing and unit Crests  – to ThinkcreativelyA@aol.com

Follow up with a donation to
Phil Burns
608 Portside Dr
Davidson, NC 28036

One unresolved problem is if we have lost a Classmate and the wife has a double name, I list Classmates full name & Wife with a double name.

5.  Crests may line the left border while your unit crests will go after your name.  You may send as many Crests as you desire – you must indicate the order of the listing next to your name.  Look at Frank Reasoner’s listing.  The Purple Heart is for Killed in Action, the Medal of Honor is next, with Marine Corps and 1st Divison

6.  At the bottom -you can see how I handled the ’54 – ’57 and how I handled material under our Crest.   I developed the material for Room 405 .

WHO WAS THIS ??

His Dad took him to the ’53 Army Duke Game. He still recalls the sound of
The Bugles, The Drums, The Chanting –
The Incessant Chanting – GO! GO!! GO!!!

8.  At the bottom of the page are 5 Class Crests.  The Donors  from ’54, ’55, ’56, and ’57 are represented.  In addition individuals who contributed to the success of the “53 Team are listed.  ’62’s Crest is also included and contains information relating to that Fall.  George Schein and George Handy are included under the 54′ Crest.  They are the only 62′ Donors listed as of now.

9. If you count the number of names (including Coaches) you will find over fifty members of the 1953 -1954 Corps of Cadets which were required to be added By ’62

Judo Club

by “Dave McLaughlin”

When “Lee Taylor” & I first started rooming together I saw his Judo Gi and asked him about it and then asked if he would teach me. We proceeded to workout in our own time and slowly gathered other cadets from our own class and other classes. When I wasn’t swimming or playing water polo we were practicing Judo. We had formed quite a good club but it was not “Official”. After several petitions the Comm. finally authorized us as a full competitive sports club in Sept 1961, with the proviso that we did not enter any competition. The Supt. and the Comm. figures that we were a new club without any experience and did not want us to make the Academy look bad.

’62 Armor Files

Members of the West Point Class of 1962 assigned to Armor branch standing in front of the Patton Monument at West Point. In 1962 the monument was still in its original position, facing the old Cadet library. The old library was demolished and the new library erected on the original site of the Patton Monument. The monument was placed in storage for over four years while the new library was constructed, then reinstalled in its present location.

Ron Chisholm

’62’s Last All-Time Record Holder

In his final year, Ron Chisholm held opponents to 2.18 goals per game, an Academy record that has stood for 46 years. This was the last Academy individual or team record belonging to the Class of 1962.

Ron had a sensational career but this writer is only now realizing it.

His 50 career wins in goal is third all-time and put him first by 13 wins at graduation.

His 1639 career saves is 11th all-time but was first by 41 saves at graduation.

His career goals-against average of 2.53 is 4th all-time but was first by about a full goal at graduation.

His career save percentage of .905 is fifth all-time but was tops at graduation.

His ten career shutouts is second all-time but was first by six shutouts at graduation.

In addition to his all-time record for goals-against per game in First Class year (now 2nd), his Cow year mark is still 9th best and his Yearling year mark is 13th. Ron stood first, second, and third in this category at graduation!

His save percentage in his last year puts him second all-time but he was first at graduation.

His five shutouts First Class year puts him second but first at graduation.

He received the Henry “Hal” Beukema Award as the most valuable player on the hockey team in 1962.

By my count, then, Ron Chisholm held ten all-time Army hockey records when we graduated. That includes most wins in a season -17 (twice – 60-61 and 61-62). Ron also held the most saves in a season at around 605 (exact number not available). Was it just me who did not know this?

The hockey media guide is a good one and mining this Ron Chisholm data from it resulted in the discovery of a very interesting sub-story, one that might support a mini-series.

The goalie for the 1962-63 season was Jack Shephard,Class of 1963. The year after that, the goalie was Neil Mieras, Class of 1964. So each of those guys got to start in goal for one year. Well, Shephard eclipsed Ron in three of the all-time goalie records and Mieras tied him for another! These three goalies put together a five-year run of excellence unequalled in the annals of Army hockey history.

So visualize Shepard and Mieras, top goalies, riding the bench for two full years waiting for the man ahead to graduate. There is a story there and I hope someone will come forward with it.

Dave Phillips

62’s Sports Historian

Dave did not have the skills in the early 60’s to make the Basketball or Baseball Teams, however he does have the skill today to wear a Braves Uniform.

No one in ’62 and perhaps most Classes spent more time supporting Army Teams than Dave.
