<p>
<em>Elisha Lloyd Gallup, Jr.</em> made his ap&shy;pearance in 1933 with a smile that graced his whole life and all who had the good fortune to know him. It infused him with the cheerful, positive outlook that attended his every ven&shy;ture, West Point included.</p>
<p>
Born in New London, CT, to Elisha and Flora (Main) Gallup, he all but lost his first name in boyhood when a camp counselor had difficulty with Elisha. On the spot he dubbed him Mike, and with no provenance other than this happenstance, the name stuck.</p>
<p>
The family later moved to Groton, where he graduated from Fitch High School in 1950. He joined the National Guard before he was out of school, seeking and gaining an appointment to West Point and entering the Academy with the Class of 1955.</p>
<p>
Apart from his &ldquo;can do&rdquo; approach to every&shy;thing, Mike was a man of such considerable savvy that he easily negotiated the hurdles the academic department threw in our way, and he freely donated his time to coaching the less fortunate scholars of E-2.</p>
<p>
His branch choice was the Corps of Engi&shy;neers, a natural for him, and his first stop after graduation was the Engineer School at Ft. Belvoir. His next move was to the 307th Airborne Engineer Battalion, 82nd Air&shy;borne Division at Ft. Bragg. After Ranger and Airborne training and jumpmaster qualification at Ft. Benning, he spent two rewarding and productive years in the 307th honing company officer skills as platoon leader, executive officer, company commander, and battal&shy;ion S-3. He also got his first taste of overseas duty with exercise as&shy;signments to Panama, CZ.</p>
<p>
In 1958, Mike added to his overseas re&shy;sume with a year as engineer adviser to the Military Assistance Advisory Group in Iran. Upon his return, he expanded his horizons, earning his master&rsquo;s degree in civil engineer&shy;ing from Princeton in 1961. That earned him two years as resident engineer at Harmon Air Base, Newfoundland, after which he returned to the Engineer School for counter&shy;insurgency training.</p>
<p>
In 1963 he went to the Pentagon as an aide to the Chief of Engineers, but he shortened the two-year tour with his first assignment to Vietnam. As part of Military Assistance Command, Vietnam he served first as a com&shy;bat engineer battalion advisor, then finished his 18-month tour as the assistant division Engineer for the 1st Cavalry.</p>
<p>
He had a year back in the States in the 101st Airborne at Ft. Campbell, KY, as execu&shy;tive officer of the 326th Engineer Battalion. He particularly cherished this tour as his younger brother Archie, a new lieutenant and engineer, turned up in the same unit, and they served together when the battalion later de&shy;ployed to Vietnam.</p>
<p>
In 1968, he completed the Armed Forces Staff College and returned to the Pentagon as a personnel management officer and assignment secretary for the Engineer Branch.</p>
<p>
In December 1970 he took command of the 12th Engineer Battalion, 8th Infantry Division, in Europe until the summer of 1972, when he departed to attend the Naval War College at Newport, RI. Attacking the course with his customary gusto and intel&shy;lect, he distinguished himself and wound up on the faculty.</p>
<p>
In 1975 he retired from the Army. He was a master parachutist, and his military dec&shy;orations include the Legion of Merit, four Bronze Stars, two Mer&shy;itorious Service Med&shy;als, four Air Medals, Vietnam Service Med&shy;al, Vietnam Cross of Gallantry with Silver Star, Vietnam Cross of Gallantry with Palm, Republic of Vietnam Campaign Medal and German Parachute Badge (Bronze).</p>
<p>
Retirement didn&rsquo;t slow the pace of his life a bit, nor did he intend it. He returned to engineering, his real interest, and went to work for the Electric Boat division of General Dynamics. In 1978 he signed on with a com&shy;pany that dangled the lure of more overseas duty, and he spent two challenging years in Saudi Arabia.</p>
<p>
Imbued with an entrepreneurial spirit and a desire to work at his own direction, he founded his own engineering firm, Total Technology, when he came back from the desert. The venture was so successful that when he started hankering for a different kind of engineering, he was easily able to sell it. His new tack was architectural engineer&shy;ing, and to that end he formed the Winthrop Group in 1988. The company was still go&shy;ing strong, and he was actively involved only weeks before he died.</p>
<p>
In his two and a half years in Vietnam, he faced re&shy;peated tests of his valor and fortitude, as did all who fought there, but nothing matches the courage he mustered in the face of his final battle. He had won a bout with cancer years earlier, but it returned in force. We all have to face our own mortality, but only a few of us learn what will take us and when. The way he faced it was an inspiration, and no one ever did it with more grace and good humor than Elisha. He owned up, leveled with family and friends and went on with his life, determined to live it fully&mdash;no regrets, no recriminations, cheerful to the end.</p>
<p>
As it approached, he welcomed calls from classmates and other friends, always upbeat and at peace with what lay ahead. Like an earlier member of the Long Gray Line, whose last thought when crossing the river was of the Corps, Elishas last request was for no flowers, no memorials, only gifts to West Point, Class of 1955. At the end, family around him, he left with the same smile that graced his whole life.</p>
<p>
Richer for his days among us, life goes on for his wife Ceil, his daughters Sharon, Lisa and Jolie, his son John, and for his many friends, and each new day dawns as a gift. We count them all sweet, and they&rsquo;re all welcome, but they were better and brighter days when Elisha Gallup was still with us.</p>
