I am so sorry to hear about Larry.We served together at Camp Polk and Camp Gordon Ga.He,I and Al "Rabbs"Nadalin,were pretty close buddies when we were there and in Louisiana.I have some pictures of us at Camp Polk La. I would like to send if I can .Larry was always upbeat and would try to keep me and Al smiling when we got discouraged with army life..We all had a great time in New Orleans on our way back to Camp Polk from Ga.missed our train and thought we would be in big trouble when we got back.Larry got us on the bus and we beat the train back to camp.We were Ok..Later he and I decided to come home for a leave(AWOL)and when we got back they sent us to KOREA, but we had a lot of fun together.Al and I stayed in the Guard when we got back and I would see him occasionaly,but as you know Al is gone and now Larry .I'll miss him.Again my condolences Marcia..Dave

I was so sorry to hear about Larry, Marcia. Obviously, we we weren't close, but a few years ago, Al Nadalin called me one evening and said that Larry was in town and could they come over. The three of us spent a memorable evening chatting about a whole variety of things.....we really enjoyed ourselves. As you probably know, Al is now gone, too. Again, Marcia, my condolences. Ken
