  2. To the family of Erwin Allen,

    On behalf of the 624th quartermaster vets co. I would like to send our condolences. I have attempted to reach you by phone but have been unable to locate a phone number. We have sent our last newsletter to the last known address in which we recognized your father. We hope you received it. We are so sorry that Erwin passed in such a tragic way. Erwin had attempted to contact one of our veterans a few weeks before his accident but we were unable to reach him when we returned the call. We hope your memories are fond ones and please know that we continue to remember your father when we gather for our luncheons.
