Gary Al Diaz (Malson) was the second son born to Alfonso "Al" Diaz and Betty Arlene Blohm on 3 March 1946 in Albany, California. During his early years Gary resided with his family in Richmond, California.

Al and Betty divorced when Gary and his brother "Butch" were very young. His mother married again to Donald Malson and Gary took his name growing up.

Gary joined the Marines at 17, although I suspect they thought he was 18 since they list his birth year as 1945 instead of 1946. Gary served in Viet Nam during that emotional conflict.

Although Gary appears to have put 1945 as year of birth on his SS and Military enlistment papers, which is reflected on his Military Marker, his birth certificate and his father said he was born in 1946.
