LARSON, CDR Allen Ray (Deceased) c/o His Son Tim Larson SmokyCat@msn.com "...I'm in the process of researching my fathers Naval career in the hopes of dedicating a plaque to him at the Mt. Solidad War Memorial here in San Diego. His name is/was Cmdr Allen Ray Larson USNR, and spent the majority of his service time stationed out of Minneapolis NAS during the 1950's & 1960's. In my youth I should have paid closer attention, but to the best of my knowledge, at one point in time he was squadron commander of VP-813, VP-814, and VP-815, making him the only reserve officer having done so. Soes anyone out there have any recollections or photos of him that you would like to share? I'm primarially interested in obtaining a USN file photo to have etched on his memorial. Can anyone point me in the right direction? I have his service number, but alas not his S.S.N. Thanks for any assistance that you might give..." [19FEB2002]
