Never Forgotten

I had the honor of serving with Allen Avery in pararescue on Guam. We once survived several consecutive days and nights in the ocean on the edge of a typhoon in pursuit of satellite film canisters dropped from space. We shared other missions as well. A true PJ, Allen never hesitated to run into the fire with no thought for his own well-being. And, like a true PJ, he never hesitated to take a dare, providing much entertainment and lots of laughter, as us PJs found any excuse to celebrate anything, or sometimes nothing in particular. Between retrieving spy satellite film canisters, long boring Duckbutts, punctuated by the about once a month rescue mission, we found that PJ instructor Dee Nelson was right when he said that pararescue is 90% sheer boredom and 10% sheer terror. We lived for the 10%, always eager to save a life. A true PJ, Allen Avery died the way he lived. Always remember the way he lived!
