This a memorial to my father who died
when I was 16 months old.
I didn't get to know him, and I am trying
to find any of his buddies that might have served with him,
and could tell me more about the person
that he was.

His tour of duty began on June 7, 1968,
and he died July 18, 1968, in Binh Thuy, South Vietnam.
He was in Company D, 1st Squadron, 11th ACR.
I believe his commanding officer was
Captain Garald R. Jacobsen.
If you have any information that might
help me find out more about my father, please contact me at

Here's my father (left) with two friends.
I hope someone can identify them.

I want to say what a good man Allen was - you see, I was his wife. We had a daughter. She never got to kmow him, but I know he was very proud of her. I only wish that she could have known him. He went off to war wanting to come home as did all the guys that lost their lives there. So I hope someone will know of him so she will find out what a great man he was. Thank you.

From his wife,
Norma Sheline
