Alan Loehr, born October 15, 1929, proudly served for the US Marine Corps Reserves, achieving the rank of Captain. A native of Fort Lauderdale, Florida, Alan primarily served at the Opa Locka base during the Korean War. The week before Alan passed away, he was able to be a part of Fleet Week in Fort Lauderdale, where he was honored by current day sailors; this was a true highlight for Papa.
