Tuddenham St. Mary, England, November 1968: Travis Allen, 4, makes some new friends at the home of Robert S. Coe in a town near RAF Mildenhall, where Travis’s dad, Staff Sgt. Russell Allen, was stationed with the 513th Tactical Airlift Wing. One “lucky” bird was destined to return home with the Allens to be the guest of honor at their Thanksgiving dinner.
