I was in the army thousand and 1966 and 67 and Kitzingen Germany. We both worked in the motor pool. Alan became the motor sergeant and I became the Terrace clerk. He was a good guy well liked and the straight shooter. I’m sure his family misses him. They have my condolences. I just looked him up, I had promised to call him 50 years ago and he never did and I just looked him up on the Internet and found spoke to his love is a loving wife and we had a pleasant conversation. My sincere condolences to his wife and family.
