    Sorry to hear of your loss. Was wondering if this was the same Larry Allen that was in the US Navy between 1961-65. I flew with a Larry Allen from Indiana when we were stationed at Barbers Point, Oahu and Midway Island. Please advise. I have pictures you might be interested in during that period of his life……Jim Tammen ( a close friend of Larry’s) jjhavasu@gmail.com Thank you!
