United States Army General. Some consider him the "father" of the Air Force when he was appointed the first Chief of the Aeronautical Division of the Army Signal Corp. Graduating from West Point in 1872, he served in the calvary until he was transferred to the United States Army Signal Corp. He served in Cuba and the Philippines. He became the Chief Signal Officer in 1906. For his service, General Allen received the Distinguished Service Cross. (bio by: Barry Charles)
