Al was one of the first guys in the Pelikan Club, to extend a hand of welcome to me way back in 1982. I will always remember his enthusiasm for the club, and through the years the weekends we spent at MacDill AFB, laughing at the folks. He would happily talk to anyone when asked about his legendary models. He was a true ambassador for our club. I have a picture on my desktop, with Al, Berrnie, Terry, George, and Ed. They all have big smiles, and Al's shines the brightest.
