<em>Benjamin Bowes &ldquo;Ben&rdquo; Beasley </em>was a true son of West Point and the Army. Deep within his DNA lay ancestry that included a Civil War veteran who walked home to Florida after Appomattox, and a young medical doctor from Hahnemann hospital, who volunteered to serve with the British Army in WWI. In December 1934, Ben was born at West Point while his father (Colonel Oscar Beasley, Class of 1930), grandson of the Civil War veteran, was teaching at the Academy. His mother, Helen, daughter of the aforementioned doctor who later became a doctor in the U.S. Army, had met and married then Lieutenant Oscar Beasley (Coast Artillery, later Corps of Engineers) on Corregidor Island in the Philippines. With this rich military background and family lore, Ben would write in his own words, on the occasion of the 50th anniversary reunion of his West Point Class of 1957, &ldquo;My first 47 years were all spent in the Army, growing up as an Army brat, then the Point, followed by 25 years on active duty.&rdquo;</p>
<p align="left">
Ben was the oldest of five children in his family which included Barbara, Jere, Helen May and Tim. His &ldquo;Army brat&rdquo; days and experiences before entering West Point in 1953 were typical of many Greatest Generation military families who lived the era of World War II. They endured separation for the duration, moved about from post to post, and experienced frequent change of schools. Despite these hardships, Ben was resolved to enter West Point and continue the family tradition of service in the Army. After graduation from Western High School in the District of Columbia in 1952 and attendance at one of the military academy Prep Schools, Ben secured an appointment to West Point, and entered with the Class of 1957 on July 7, 1953.</p>

Ben&rsquo;s cadet days are recalled fondly by his classmates and L-1 companymates. He is remembered for his sense of humor, kindness, compassion and consideration for others. Ben had no difficulties with the academic or tactical departments, and during his First Class year he attained the rank of first sergeant of his company. Upon graduation on June 4, 1957, Ben was commissioned and chose Armor as his branch.</p>
<p align="left">
Ben had a full, well-rounded and eventful 25-year Army career. After completion of the Armor School Basic Course at Fort Knox, KY, Ben reported to Germany to serve with the 2nd Armored Cavalry Regiment along the Czech border until 1961. Ben resolved as a result of this tour of duty that he &ldquo;would never be cold again!&rdquo; He was then assigned to the 4th Battalion, 68th Armor until 1963. This was followed by the Career Course at the Infantry School, Fort Benning, GA, and in 1964, he attended the University of Pennsylvania and earned a master&rsquo;s degree in English in 1966. He then taught in the Department of English at West Point from 1966 to 1968.</p>

In 1968, Ben deployed to Vietnam for the first time and served with the 2nd Battalion, 34th Armor, 25 ID, and as the AdC for the CG, II Field Forces until 1969. From 1969 to 1970, he attended and graduated from the CGSC at Fort Leavenworth, KS and then served at the Pentagon in the Office of the Deputy Chief of Staff for Personnel, DA until 1971. From 1971 to 1973, he served in the Office of the Commanding General, CONARC, followed by a tour with the Office of the Deputy Chief of Staff for Personnel, TRADOC until 1974.</p>

Ben returned to Vietnam in 1974 for the second time to serve in the DA Office of Training and Tactics. He returned home in 1975 to command a basic combat training battalion, followed by commanding the District Recruiting Center in Columbia, SC until 1977. He graduated from the Army War College in 1979, and then served his final assignment with the Military Training Mission to Saudi Arabia until his retirement from active duty in 1982. Ben assessed his own military career as, &ldquo;... most of which I found challenging and enjoyable, particularly the troop duty assignments.&rdquo;</p>

As a result of his outstanding and meritorious service, and especially his two tours in Vietnam, Ben was awarded the Silver Star, Defense Superior Service Medal, Bronze Star, Meritorious Service Medal (with oak leaf cluster), Air Medal (with three oak leaf clusters), and the Army Commendation Medal.</p>

Ben parlayed his last assignment in Saudi Arabia into a post-Army job with the oil company (Saudi Aramco) where he remained until a second retirement at age 60. While in Saudi Arabia, Ben married Tammy, whom he first met in Vietnam in 1975. Ben best describes his time in Saudi Arabia thus: &ldquo;Life in that &lsquo;Magic Kingdom&rsquo; was amazing! The best part of that experience was reuniting with Tammy, who only spent 14 years deciding that I might be worth marrying.&rdquo;</p>

Ben and Tammy moved in 1994 to their final home in Bluewater Bay, FL, where they lived happily and quietly, walking or riding bicycles. After an extended illness, Ben died on December 3, 2013. He was cremated, and his family spread his ashes beneath the Mid-Bay Bridge in Bluewater.&nbsp; Ben is survived by his two brothers and two sisters; five adult children; 10 grandchildren and one great-grandchild.</p>

Ben Beasley admirably fulfilled his family&rsquo;s legacy and longtime commitment to duty and service to country. This son of West Point and the Army was true to his calling and earned his honorable and distinguished place in the Long Gray Line. Well done, Ben. Be thou at peace.</p>
