You are not forgotten, LT

Lt Tripp was the Co. C 2/12 Bn. Ist Cav Division XO; at A shau valley he had to take command of our Company because the CO was unable to command due to blood poisoning. He did an outstanding job; he was killed in the same battle that took the Company CO and the Bn. Co.

A True Leader of Men

Pete and I were two of 13 2LT's commissioned on June 12, 1967 at The Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore. Both of us were also Distinguished Military Graduates. While I knew Pete for only two years and only through ROTC activities, I always thought of him as a truly remarkable natural leader. He put great effort into all that he did at Hopkins and I am sure he was well respected by his soldiers in Vietnam. I did not arrive in Vietnam until June, 1969 and retired from the Army after 20 years service. I think of Pete and his sacrifice often. He was the inspiration for many of us in the Class of '67 suggesting during our 30th year Hopkins reunion that a memorial plaque be erected at Hopkins commemorating the loss of our friends and brothers-in-arms.

I didnt know him very well. He was a former platoon leader in my company C 2/12 first air cavalry. I know that the men from my platoon who knew him well, respected him very much. Ron Trumps
