LARRY MELVIN ALCOS
LARRY M ALCOS
Larry was the fifth child of a family of 8 brothers and 3 sisters. His nickname was 'Boy'. The Alcos Family owned a pig farm, so he and his brothers fed the pigs to help the family business. Larry loved going camping and fishing with family and friends at a special beach called MANAKOLE. Larry's first car that he owned just before leaving for Vietnam was a white Nova. Larry was killed just three months before his 21st birthday. His family misses him dearly and know that Akua has a special place for him in heaven.
Son of Hawaii
One who has the face of a warrior (loyal and honored) in his place of birth.
(From the Hawaii Vietnam Veterans Memorial)
How often you will have me near you when wood smoke drifts across the wind, or the sky darkens in a summer storm - think of me in the days to come, as I am thinking of you this minute, not gone or alone or dead, but part of the earth beneath you, part of the air around you, part of the heart that must not be lonely.
