  1. To Al’s family, we are sorry to hear Al has passed on, you all have our sympathy and condolence, I served many years as a Happy Hooligan with Al, we started out together in Air Police (now security) in 1963 and served on the same flight at the weapons site, in 67 Al was assigned to Base Ops and I was assigned to the Training office, but we still visited together almost every day, he was one of the best to work with.
