A good man

Arleigh married my cousin and we double dated a time or two. I didn't know him very well but she is such an outstanding woman I know he must have been equally outstanding to have attracted her. I also have been told that he was offered help to avoid his service in Vietnam and declined. Such sweet sorrow to think of the future he and Judy might have had. Think of him and David Lentz often.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear SGT Melvin Arleigh 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, Sir

Curt Carter
