Introduction Here’s Larry Lilley, from Lancaster, California. Another fine Southern California lad called upon to serve his country on May 17, 1966. Just two years out of high school and Uncle Sam required him to join the 9th Infantry Division as it was reactivated at Fort Riley, Kansas in preparation for combat in the Mekong Delta’s rice paddies, jungles and swamps. Larry drove his little Red Corvette to Kansas and quickly transformed from a happy go lucky, fun loving young man into a dedicated and well trained fighting soldier. Larry excelled in all aspests of infantry training and was thus promoted to train in the vital job of radio-communications. Soon, he became the 1st Platoon’s primary R-T-O reporting directly to his Platoon Leader. As you can see from the documents below, Larry thoroughly learned his job as he was invaluable when the conditions of terrain and contact with the enemy became extremely rough and perilous – no one was more dependable.
Today, Larry enjoys life immensely, which is abundantly obvious once you see him with his gorgeous wife. As throughout his life, Larry is still playin’ hard and workin’ hard while continuing his successful Palmdale area motorcycle businesses. Larry, you are “Tha Man”! Bill Reynolds – November 23, 2001
