    My father is Lawrence Kleinman’s namesake. Is there anything further you can tell us about Larry’s military career and how he passed away? My grandmother Isabel was his wife. She was not told by the crew men about his last days because they thought the information would be to much for her to bare. She has passed away and we are only left with various conflicting stories about what happened to Larry.
