LAWRENCE K. LARZALERE, 1LT, USAF
Lawrence Larzalere '55
Date of birth: unknown
Date of death: June 13, 1953
Lawrence is not listed in the 1955 Lucky Bag, nor the Class of 1955 "In Memoriam" page. Based on the timing — he was killed in a war that was over nearly two years before his class graduated — he must have had several years of college before entering the Class of 1955.
Unable to find his name (and therefore his date of birth) in the 1952 or 1953 Register of Commissioned Officers of the US Air Force.
