    Dear SGT Larrie Cornelius Allen, sir

    As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for your sacrifice made on behalf of our wonderful country. The youth of today could gain much by learning of heroes such as yourself, men and women whose courage and heart can never be questioned.

    May God allow you to read this, and may He allow me to someday shake your hand when I get to Heaven to personally thank you. May he also allow my father to find you and shake your hand now to say thank you; for America, and for those who love you.

    With respect, and the best salute a civilian can muster for you, Sir

    Curt Carter

    This article appeared in the Jackson Citizen Patriot on August 30, 1970:
    Another Jackson soldier has been listed as a casualty of the Vietnam War. Sgt. Larrie C. Allen, 22, son of Mr. and Mrs. Graham Allen, 326 Euclid, died of wounds received Aug. 22. Sgt. Allen, who graduated from Parkside High School in 1966, was serving with an artillery unit about nine miles from the demilitarized zone. The sergeant's parents were notified of their son's death the same day they received a letter from him containing a newspaper clipping which stated that his position has been under heavy fire recently from rockets fired from North Vietnam. Sgt. Allen arrived in Vietnam April 2, after serving 20 months in Germany. He was drafted into the Army in November 1967, and reenlisted in November 1969. Surviving besides his parents are three sisters, Mrs. Henry (Marlene) Grayson, Clara and Karen; and his grandmother, Mrs. Clara Allen of Detroit. Services for Sgt. Allen will be at Patience-Montgomery Chapel, 406 First, at a time to be announced later.
