SGT Allen E. Grimm
Like with many of the Korean War-era Dragons, it's difficult to find much information about Sergeant Grimm other than the very basic service stats and information about the day he was killed in action. That's just a product of time and the period in which the war took place. He was a member of Kilo (or possibly Charlie) Company, 3rd Battalion, 14th Infantry and was K.I.A on October 10th, 1951 while fighting in North Korea. Four other members of Kilo Company died that day, which means that it must have been a tough battle for those men to go through; a day that I'm sure the men who experienced it never forgot. The entire Regiment sustained heavy losses during the month of October.
Anyone who knew Sergeant Grimm, whether fellow Soldiers or Family, are now well into their senior years or have passed on. I, like other former Dragons, refuse to let his memory fade away or for him to become just another name and date in a list of a history book. He was a son, possibly a brother and a father, a leader of Soldiers, and a Golden Dragon.
He forever earned his place at the Right of the Line that cold day.

I've been doing these small memorials for some time now both on Facebook and on my previous site. The purpose is to not only remember our fallen brothers from the 14th Infantry Regiment, but to show the families that we will always care and never forget.
