He is currently assigned as a supply LAR for the 1st Battalion, 406th Army Field Support Brigade, Fort Stewart, Ga. He was judged by his efforts to provide logistical technical support, improved Army operations support, field exercise support and overall self-improvement.

Larry served four tours in Germany, one in Panama and in various locations throughout the Continental United States. Larry retired from active duty in November 1995.
