May 11th, 2018 Boca Raton, FL To His Family and Those That Knew My Friend Guy Richardson, He was absolutely American – to borrow a phrase from TR and another of one our classmates. He came to West Point from the heart of the U. S. – his home address was Route 3, Poplar Bluff, MO. He was, athletic, good looking and intelligent. He had the street smarts of a kid from NYC and was sly as a fox. He had charisma and charmed us all. He was fun to be around. He helped make life bearable during the 4 years we spent at the academy, in Company G-2. He could have been a poster boy for the Academy’s recruitment efforts. He was a soldier. Most everybody liked Guy, and if for a brief time they didn’t for some reason or another it was short-lived. Guy, like most of us during this time in the nation’s history, never went into combat, but he would have been the kind of combat leader that men would have followed to Hell and back. The American soldier’s primary motivation for fighting in combat, like soldiers everywhere, is not out of patriotism but because of the bond he forms with his comrades. And was he ever a comrade. Other than family, this bond of comradeship may be the strongest there is in human relationships. I am honored to have been his comrade and good friend, sad we didn’t spend more time together after we all went are separate ways in June of ’72, and thankful to have known him and hold the memories in my head. He was one hell of person and friend – really one of the good ones. And I’m going to miss him, knowing that he’ll never again be on the end of that phone when we usually spoke at Xmas. Godspeed to my old friend. He won’t be forgotten. Pete Odorico G-2 ‘72
