I knew Joe quite well. Joe was not only one of my students when I taught at CMA in 1965, but he continued on to the Citadel as I had done a few years before. I visited with him several times during his years as a cadet there, and was deeply hurt when his parents informed me of his death in Viet Nam.

Joe Eubanks was an exemplary gentleman. His years at the Citadel formed him and gave him enormous self-confidence. His service in the U.S. Army was meritorious. His passing was a great loss, not only to his parents who outlived him but for only a few years, but to our nation.

I want to render my respects to his memory in this manner. If anyone who reads this comment has the opportunity to visit the Viet Nam Memorial Wall in Washington, D.C., you may be able, as I have, to engrave his name which is listed on the wall, on a piece of paper provided for this purpose.
