    Truly saddened this morning

    When Col. Allen left HMM-262 in March 69 I never expected to see him again, then in 09 at my first Tiger reunion there he was. I stood straight and sucked it in to shake his hand and told him what an honor it was. Remember JJ, you told him I was one of his and he said "No, he looks too young to be one of mine" It made the reunion for me to spend time and talk and remember. I sent him a tie at Chrismas with the squadron logo on it and a letter thanking him for keeping my head straight Christmas 68 and he replied how "He couldn't believe how good he looked in it" and we could wear them to dinner together in Reno. I expected to see him again.

      RTB LtCol Abert "Neil" Allen

      It is my extremely sad duty to inform you that NEIL ALLEN is "RTB" (Returned To Base"). Neil was an Old Tiger Pilot, one of our Commanding Officers in Vietnam (Sep 68 - Mar 69) and a friend to all of us. Neil had been ill since January and was hospitalized in the Southeastern Texas Medical Center, in Port Arthur, Texas, due to a series of medical issues.

      Neil and his wife Kim were permanent fixtures at ALL of our Reunions. They had celebrated their 54th Wedding Anniversary on May 27, "...the day before he left..." as Kim told me. She also said that he was truly looking forward to seeing "his Marines, his Friends, his Buddies" in Reno, something that he treasured and looked forward to every year.

      Funeral details are still being worked out and will follow shortly
