I served with Alan in Co C 1/22 Infantry, 4th Infantry Division.
I only knew Alan a few months before his death. He was shot as we came under attack one morning and he survived until the Helicopter arrived to dust him off.
I helped load Alan onto the helicopter and he seemed to go just as we got him on board. Another fellow helping to get Alan on board was shot in the calf in the process as was the helicopter.
Alan was a good soldier and he was a good guy. He liked to laugh and to have a good time. He cleaned a bunch of us out playing poker a few weeks before his death and I remember how he teased us about it.
I give thanks for Alan and will remember him always.From his friend and fellow soldier,
The 1st Battalion, 22nd Infantry, was the one of the longest-serving unit ground units in Vietnam, operating in-country from 1966 until withdrawal in 1972.
