In the otherwise excellent “Lives Lived and Lost,” I was disappointed that none of our fellow veterans were mentioned.
Edward Cissel ’43 landed on Utah Beach at Normandy on D-Day and rose to captain in the field artillery. An educator in civilian life, Ed served as headmaster of John Burroughs School in St. Louis for 19 years.
In 1967 in Vietnam, Capt. Henry C. Stackpole ’57 nearly died twice in surgery from wounds he suffered. Later a lieutenant general, he commanded an international rescue mission in Bangladesh, which had suffered massive flooding.
