    The 1963 graduate of Texas A. & M. University died within four weeks of his arrival at the air base at Bein Hoa. According to the Monday telegram notifying Mrs. Allen of her husband's death, the captain was "on an operational mission and made a strafing pass from which his aircraft failed to pull out of the run. "He died in South Viet Nam on 4 October 1965 from multiple injuries as the result of an aircraft accident," the telegram said. "He said he felt that any man in uniform should realize that this might come about, and he was willing to do his part," Mrs. Allen said of her husband's service in Viet Nam. "He did feel strongly about this (doing his part). Captain Allen, who was valedictorian of his Oxford High School graduating class, is also survived by two sons, Charles F. Allen III, 6, and Jeffrey Lee Allen, 4. The Allen family moved to Bryan in August from Dayton, Ohio. He left Bryan six weeks ago for the one year Viet Nam assignment. A graduate with honors at A. & M., Captain Allen attended the University of Kentucky before joining the service in 1955 as a career serviceman.
