From the Billings (Montana) News
***** Alan was my Uncle and very dear to me, even though I was very young when he died. He was a wonderful and very brave man who gave his life in service to his country. While the bio indicates that he was single, he was actually married and left behind a young widow. I have many of his personal effects, pictures and letters which I treasure dearly. To this day, he is lovingly remembered by his family and his sacrifice will never be forgotten. I would like to sincerely thank the person who created this record. It is good to know that there are others out there who remember the sacrifices of our nation's hero's, even the ones from 40 years ago.
