The Alpha Recon Association is very pleased to announce that two members of Team Striker have been returned home and identified. For complete information on this loss go to http://www.alphareconassociation.org/searchandrecovery.htm

The names of two of our missing from this patrol are Cpl Merlin Allen from Bayfield Wisconsin and HM Michael Judd from Cleveland Ohio. Their remains are now in Hawaii at JPAC headquarters.

Arrangements for the interment are work in progress. The ceremonies and burial will be on June 29th in Bayfield Wisconsin.The information is that Merlin Allen will be buried at his Memorial, which was previously constructed, on a small island owned by the Allen family. This island is on Lake Superior a short distance by boat to Bayfield Wisconsin.

The Memorial Service will be on the dock area in Bayfield. Family, Military, and guests will be transported to Sand Island for the interment at his memorial.

Please help us in getting the word out to those you may know who are not on our distribution list or without computers.

Travel to Bayfield by air is through Duluth MN airport.

Suggested close by Hotels are Bayfield Inn

Legendary Waters Resort and Casino

The Inn at Washburn

At the present time no information is available for Michael Judd.

The association has decided to not contract a particular hotel as we do for reunions because this is a one day event.

I know this information may be sketchy and more info will certainly follow.

Allen's family would be very pleased if a good turnout developes.

Please contact me directly by email or phone 406-529-7693,Eastern timezone, for any discussion on the Ceremonies etc.

There is no additional information at this time for the others still MIA
